Beyond the High Line: Transforming Fresh Kills, Staten Island

Presented by Friends of the High Line with support from the Seed Fund, this video features an hour-long presentation and discussion of plans to transform Fresh Kills landfill, once the largest landfill in the world, into Freshkills Park, one of New York City’s largest public parks. Hear James Corner, of James Corner Field Operations, and Eloise Hirsh, of the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, discuss plans for public access to the area’s creeks, wetlands, meadows, and sweeping vistas.

Friends of the High Line presents over 450 public programs every year.
