Paris Elevated Rail Park Featured in Movie "Before Sunset"

FHL supporters who've never seen the Promenade Plantée – the elevated rail structure in Paris that was converted to a park during the 1990s – should make a point of going to "Before Sunset", starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, now in theaters nationwide. A significant portion of "Before Sunset" was shot at the Promenade Plantée. This popular Parisian park is a vivid example of the feasibility and desirability of reusing elevated rail infrastructure as public open space. It shows how access systems can be created; how safe, secure, beautiful public environments can be designed for elevated rail beds; and – most importantly – that parks on elevated rail structures will be well-used by residents and visitors.
