The High Line creators released High Line Network, a website to advise and encourage the creation of public park an green areas.

In the United States, there are 19 projects already 19 existing or in progress. The transformation can improve the quality of life in a neighborhood or even become a popular tourist attraction as it happened with the High Line, the park built on a disused section of the elevated railroad in New York.

This is a beautiful documentary (narrated by Susan Sarandon) dedicated to the High Line project:

It would be such a dream see some of crumbling and disused Italian infrastructure transformed in public spaces and parks, I believe that landscape architecture can turn depressed (and depressing) areas into new resources for cities.
