High Line Opens!

Elevated Railway tracks that were abandoned 30 years ago have been transformed into a public park, filled with gardens, grass, fountains and lounge areas. The High Line runs along the west side of Manhattan from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street. Three stories above the ground, the park provides a new vantage point to experience the city. It was designed by James Corner Field Operations with Diller Scofidio & Renfro. The second phase of construction is set to begin in a few weeks and will extend the new park to W. 30th Street. Check out the New York Times review, "A Fresh Outlook on High," for more information

It's good that the park is already done and they really made it magnificent. People will really enjoy here even just by looking at the picture, how much more if you go there. Brilliant idea. Good Work.
