Collective Action in a Bottom Up Institution
CULTURE OF THE ORGANIZATION
"Many big public projects come from the top down. An elected official champions it, and gets it done. We couldn't have done the High Line without New York's elected officials, but I always describe the High Line as a bottom-up project. Josh laughs when I say it, because it sounds sort of gay, but the fact is, our project began at the community level."
-Robert Hammond, co-founder
