Trains are out and pedestrians are in at this innovative Manhattan park.
The High Line
519 West 23rd Street
(+1) 212 206 9922
The High Line was originally built as an elevated railway so freight wagons could travel along Manhattan’s lower west side without squashing pedestrians. Now the trains are gone and the pedestrians have claimed the views, turning the tracks into a mile long public park, filled with green spaces, performance places and tasty street food.
