Section 2 of NYC High Line Now Open

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on June 11, 2011 in Design
  • The second section of New York City's elevated urban park has officially opened to the public. Built on the disused elevated railroad running through Manhattan, the mile-long High Line is a marvelous example of reclaiming urban space for the greater (and greener) good of the city. The park and walkway, which was designed by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, runs from Gansevvort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
