Rainbow City

One of the best things I love about New York City is its brilliant use of urban space to engage the public.

On my recent trip to NYC, I had to re-visit the High Line, a revitalization project transforming the elevated rail line into an innovative public park and space for exploration, interaction, and art installations. This summer, the High Line opened the new section 2 extension that lead to a new public plaza below called The Lot. To my delight I encountered Rainbow City, a whimsical playground filled with giant colourful balloon sculptures (including a bouncy castle) inviting both children and adults and to play.

The installation has since been taken down, but now in its place is another great idea: an open air rollerskating rink. Wonderful inspiration for other urban cities.
