The third section of the High Line, from 30th to 34th Streets, will be closed to park visitors from Tuesday, February 9, to Tuesday, February 23, due to an ongoing construction project. The High Line south of 30th Street will be accessible to visitors during this time.

Lord Mayor of Copenhagen and Swimming Pools Part I

This morning, we took the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen Ritt Bjerregaard and several Danish officials on a tour of High Line construction (you can see the recently re-installed tracks on either sides of the planking).

I love the Danes and their use of public space. The Copenhagen Harbour Bath is on my short list of swimming holes I want to visit.

The Bath was built in 2002-- the water in the Harbor is so clean they don't even need to filter or chlorinate the water. Some Copenhageners now pack towels and swimwear in their briefcases.

This summer I hope to try our own local version: the Floating Pool that opened last summer. 

Stay tuned for more swimming pools-- including one that was once proposed for the High Line!
