The High Line - park in the city (video)

As mentioned during the TED Talk shared earlier where Amanda Burden talked of her work in NYC, Robert Hammond gets into more detail on the development effort for "the high line"

One of the interesting side effects of the High Line was the evolution of the Renegade Cabaret. In 2009, it was quite the attraction to have singing performances from a building's fire escape as the people walked along the High Line. The Renegade Cabaret no longer performs there as the landlord is concerned about the fire escape. They do still perform at other locations in the City.

Here is a snapshot in 2009 of what the Renegade Cabaret was like:

What could be done with the Emmons St site? What could spring up around it?
