The High Line, New York

Scenes from my trip to New York City this past fall:

The High Line (also known as the High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) New York City linear park built on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. Inspired by the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée, a similar project in Paris completed in 1993, the High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park.

Several stairways along the trail allow you to come up from the ground and access the park.

Between buildings.

Turning corridors into vibrant public spaces to stop and relax in.

  1. Thanks for posting these images! I took my 15 year old son to NYC this past summer but ran out of time to visit the High Line trail/park. Perhaps next time. Again, thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for dropping by Kevin! Should you get an opportunity to return, I highly recommend it. As of November 2014 the trail currently ends somewhere near the Hudson River and the USS Intrepid Air Carrier Museum. There will soon be a part of the High Line that even juts out directly into the river, but that was still being built when I visited. 🙂
