The High Line is a 1.6 km linear park in New York City, built on a 2.33 km section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan. It has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and is based on a similar project in Paris, the nearly 5 km Promenade Plantée, completed in 1993. The High Line currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard. I was recently in New York and we took a sunset stroll along it. It is a great way to see the city, to escape the concrete jungle that is New York and to immerse yourself in some nature.
