The High Line

{ Images via Dezeen }
The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan's streets. The High Line is open as a public park, owned by the City of New York and operated by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation. When all sections are complete, the High Line will be a mile-and-a-half-long elevated park, running through the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell's Kitchen. The High Line now runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. Section 1 of the High Line opened to the public on June 9, 2009, and runs from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street. Section 2, between West 20th and West 30th Streets, just opened on June 8, 2011. A party celebrating the summer will be thrown on June 28th. The Lot is a public art, free events and family gathering space on 30th Street. Absolutely take a chic walk! The High Line
