Presented by Friends of the High Line in partnership with the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and The Trust for Public Land, this video features an hour-long presentation and discussion of new and revived public spaces in Detroit. It is part of Beyond the High Line, an ongoing series of free talks to educate and inspire conversation about the transformation of the country’s out-of-use industrial infrastructure into public open space.
In this video, Faye Alexander Nelson, of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, and Phillip Cooley, of the Roosevelt Park Conservancy, talk about the role that public spaces in Detroit is playing in the city’s evolution.
Beyond the High Line continues in the fall with free public talks on New York City’s Low Line and New Orleans’ Lafitte Corridor.
