April 16th, 2011 The High Line of New York City

NEW YORK CITY (April 2011) - What a surprise New York City’s newest city park is! Built meters above the ground on an old railroad trestle on the west side of Manhattan, this park is an amazing example of what volunteers can make happen when they get the support and the funding! Running from the Meat Packing District to West 34th Street, THE HIGH LINE is in one a contemporary space, a garden, and reclamation at its best!

Old rails torn up and replaced with wandering pathways, super gardens and trees and a great display of public art. Some of the old rails were even reintroduced to the park! The photos in this gallery are the result of a couple strolls I took along the High Line over a couple years. The plantings change with the season of course, so it’s always a surprise! See Gallery!
