The High Line: Above It All in New York

Section 2

The High Line is New York City’s newest and most unique public park, built on an abandoned elevated freight railway that ran from 1934 to 1980 through Manhattan’s West Side.

Section 1 of the High Line opened in June 2009, with restored Art-deco railings, concrete pathways, seating and an otherworldly landscape inspired by the wild flowers, grasses and trees that took hold during the decades the railway was abandoned.

Section 2 opened in June 2011, doubling the length and adding new features such as a great lawn, a woodland flyover and several lookouts.
