High Line, The
The High Line is one of the best examples of urban architecture to happen in recent years, reclaiming for park a railroad track system the brought meat into and out of Manhattan when New York City was the leading distributor of meat in the United States. Stretching from Gansevoort Street to 30th Street, the 1.4 miles of tracks are beautifully planted and maintained by a volunteer band of horticulturists. Equally engaging are the views of New York City from thirty feet above street level. Don’t miss this urban park wonder by the design team of Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
