I wonder why the Highline in New York City has become much more famous than its older predecessor, the Promenade Plantee in Paris. I don’t think it’s a consequence of the design, the location or the scenic quality. Could the explanation be an application of triumphal American marketing to the Highline? Or does the Highline have more oomph? Paris is fast becoming a cycling city and the Promenade offers a great ride.
