nyc: high line

The High Line was build in the 1930's to transport freight above ground, as an effort to remove dangerous trains from the streets. The line ceased operation in 1980 and lay dormant for the next twenty plus years, until the city and private investors lobbied to turn the structure into a public park. In 2009, after ten years of planning, designing and landscaping, the initial stage of the park opened to the public. Learn more about the High Line here.
