Kimmelman makes an observation in the article that should be heeded by those embracing a High Line inspired makeover of Seventh Street Park:
[James] Corner [who designed the High Line] calls the city around the park its "borrowed landscape." The inimitability of those surroundings, and the park's site-specific detailing, are major reasons the so-called High Line effect has been . . . fool's gold for so many other cities that have wanted to follow in New York's footsteps.
