The High Line is an elevated railway transformed into a public park on Manhattan's West Side. The park features lush horticulture, artworks, seasonal food vendors, community programing, and unique views of the Hudson River and New York City skyline. The High Line runs between Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.

Highline Park, one of my favorite spots in New York. A park built on a former elevated metro line, where rails and path are integrated and planted, surrounded by Chelsea's architecture (get the New Yorker iPad app and listen to the Highline architecture audio tour).
The High Line (USA). 'Refurbished rail tracks have been transformed into grassy catwalks in the sky. It’s the paradigm of urban renewal gone right, enjoying its status as one of the city’s most beloved public spaces.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/new-york-city/sights/outdoors/high-line
