One of New York City’s newest attractions was made out of something old. Someone had the great idea of turning an old elevated railway into a natural park and thus the High Line was created. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues. The area around the High Line was once the booming meat, fruit and biscuit center of New York. The new park gives a unique view of the city and has created its own green spaces.
Like all of NYC, it is full of diversity and I love my two views of city buildings, the old and the new.
