The High Line

Repurposing and urban planning feat designated as 'High Line' in the world's most bustling city, New York. The High Line was formerly a railway that provided service to the area's factories and warehouses, but it has been abandoned since the 1980s. Instead of tearing it down, a group of visionaries joined forces to turn the towering piece of construction into the glorious High Line Park.

The park first opened to the public in 2009 and has since become an iconic New York City landmark. Enjoy the awe-inspiring views of the Hudson River and the city skyline as you stroll along the High Line and take in the lovely gardens, public art pieces, and idiosyncratic design features that make this park stand out.

As you stroll around the park, you'll be banqueted to a spectacular show of seasonal flowers and foliage. Numerous works of public art are available for viewing. Many rotating and permanent displays have been on display throughout the park. The High Line is a symbol of what may be accomplished when people pool their resources and ideas.
