We have shared a few posts about the hugely popular New York City High Line Park project. Now we have learned from the High Line Blog about the next big thing that may be coming to the park. According to blogger Kate Linquist, the High Line is in initial talks with artist Jeff Koons, who wants to create Train at the High Line for the new 10th Avenue Spur of the park. The installation will feature a full-size replica of a 1934 Baldwin 2900 steam locomotive suspended from a crane above the park. Estimated costs for the project are already at $25 million.
