Step 7: The rest of the “landscape architecture” is really up to you, but the way I did it was to divide each takeout box into one distinct zone. I admit that I rendition is quite abridged and not exactly accurate. I just chose my favorite parts of the High Line and translated them as best as I saw fit:
Box 1: Gansevoort stair, beginning of railroad tracks
Box 2: Beginning of woodlands
Box 3: The thick of the woodlands
Box 4: The sundeck and sunning chairs
Box 5: Water feature and 10th Ave. Plaza
Check out the gallery to see how I populated each box, or do it your own way! I think it’s pretty self-explanatory but here are some of the parts that you might need extra information for:
The water feature: I created a “pool” by folding a piece of foil into a shallow box and pressing it into my mashed potatoes. Then I filled it with a mixture of agar agar colored with blue food coloring and made cut the chairs out of quince paste. If you don’t care about keeping your High Line vegetarian, feel free to use Jello for the water.
