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 third and final phase of New York City's High Line opened to the public in September 2014. Click image for link to full profile and visit the slowottawa.ca boards >> https://www.pinterest.com/slowottawa/
The High Line in NYC, abandoned train line, now garden designed by the Dutch plantsman Piet Oudolf. Mexican feather grass (stipa tenuissima) is probably my favorite plant. It's beautiful and graceful and there is constant movement as it responds to every little breeze.
