The High Line
The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway, and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City.
Built on the remains of an abandoned elevated train track line, the High Line wove through the city like a green vine through a maze of concrete, glass, stone, steel, and brick. The long strip of platform, dotted in greenery and benches, served as a pathway above the streets, and as a viewing spot for tourists and locals alike. The old rails ran through the walkway like a rusted, metallic skeleton, half-buried in gravel, shrubs, and grass.
