The rest of the High Line

With the grand opening of the final segment of the High Line, the NY Times' Michael Kimmelman suggests that your response to the popular elevated design project will reveal something about you:

But this third phase completes a kind of narrative, which the two earlier phases started, about 21st-century New York as a greener, sleeker metropolis, riven by wealth, with an anxious eye in the rearview mirror. It is a Rorschach test, signifying different things — about urban renewal, industry, gentrification, the environment — to different people. 

Sounds like a field trip...
