Diane Von Furstenberg Seduced Everybody Into Loving the High Line


We fully admit to having a giddy, childlike excitement for the opening of the High Line. (And not just because there might be nude dudes up there.) So we had to share with you the gorgeous panoramic video shots included in the Sundance Channel’s latest video shorts. In the series, key High Line redevelopment players go up to the park and talk about why they fought for it. Some are more educational and appealing (Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden’s) than others (professional brow-furrower Ethan Hawke’s), but they’ll all get you excited for the park’s official opening next month. The teasers on sundancechannel.com plug the ten longer episodes that will start airing on the channel tonight. “So many people fell in love with the project and worked for it, until somehow we seduced everybody,” explains Diane Von Furstenberg, whose studio is adjacent to the park and who was an early advocate. “It was just a dream, and they made the dream come true.”
