Birdhouses for the High Line

Sarah Sze Bird Block High Line

Sarah Sze Bird Blocks - High Line

Yes, yes: a second section of The High Line opened recently in Manhattan. It’s lovely! It’s the extension of an innovative, urban park. It’s impossible to copy other places. My favorite part of the second bit happens to be this sculpture by Sarah Sze. On either side of the walkway, these forced perspective grids rise, dotted with wooden and steel structures. These structures not only play off the urban environment that make up their backdrop, but provide shelter to the wild animals that make the High Line home.
