The High Line, the serpentine-shaped, above-street-level garden that snakes alongside the Hudson River, has been showered with support from designers in the neighboring Meatpacking District. Now, New York’s latest park will have its own fragrance.
Fragrance entrepreneur Laurice Rahme, the founder of Bond No. 9, has created fragrances based on 40 neighborhoods and locations around New York. She has elevated her game by producing a scent based on herbs and flowers growing in the High Line, once a former freight rail structure, which hovers 30 feet above the streetscape and winds its way for 1.45 miles from Gansevoort to 34th Streets. Only the first phase of the garden, stretching north to 20th Street, is finished. The second portion, ending at 30th Street, is expected to open in early 2011, according to Friends of the High Line, which manages the park in concert with the City Parks Department. The third and final piece, which winds around the 34th Street rail yards and stops within sight of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, is now the subject of negotiation between the city and CSX, the rail company that donated the first two sections of the structure to the city.
