Architecture firmSo+So Studiohas proposed a new vision for New Jersey’sBergen Arches, an abandoned four-track cut of the Erie Railroad that runs one mile through the Palisades. The site has remained unused, overgrown, and forgotten since the last train ran in 1959. So+So, however, sees a much more lively vision for the tracks, and they’veteamed up withGreen Villain, a Jersey City place-making organization, and local residents to turn theunused space into a locale forartistic and leisure activity.
