Picture Kevin Bacon in a black suit, white v-neck tee underneath, walking in slow motion down an overgrown High Line. It just seems fitting, doesn't it? That must be what the folks at Sundance thought, too, because here is that exact scene as part of the channel's High Line Stories series (which is online only and premiered today).

As the opening of the High Line approaches, the series aims to tell its story through profiling those involved in transforming the 1.5 mile elevated railway along the west side of Manhattan. "From celebrities to City officials, from artists to architects, each episode explores their relationship to the High Line, what it means for New York City, and how it represents an example of taking a derelict post-industrial site and making it green and beautiful." See more clips here, and (fingers crossed) the first section of the park is projected to open in June.
