Ribbon of Green: DL&W Rail Trail

BY JAJEAN ROSE-BURNEY
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"Amid a dense urban environment, a beautiful ribbon of green stretches off into the distance…”

In Ribbon of Green: DL&W Rail Trail from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Deputy Executive Director of the Western New York Land Conservancy, Jajean Burney, describes the vision of a 1.5-mile elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail on the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad corridor in Buffalo, New York. Similar to the High Line park in Manhattan, where an abandoned stretch of the New York Central Railroad has been transformed to a vibrant public space, the goal of the DL&W Rail Trail is to redevelop an obsolete infrastructure as public space to encourage human connection with nature and neighborhoods.
