The High Line runs for about 1.5 miles across the lower west side of Manhattan. Originally an elevated freight line to get commerce in and out of the industrial and warehouses that once populated the area, it has been transformed into an urban park.
Along much of the path the original rails have been retained and planted with native plants.
A few spots traverse through the original buildings, all of which have been restored.
One of the spur lines that went directly into a building is a ‘garden’. While it may look like weeds to most, they want it to look that way. A tree many grow in Brooklyn but Manhattan has trendy weeds (and not those kind)
There is some art work along the path as well.
Recently it has been extended to the booming area of Hudson Yards.
