The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long park built on an elevated stretch of the former New York Central Railroad (which operated from 1831–1968). The first of three planned phases of the park opened to the public in 2009.
The High Line is an elevated railway transformed into a public park on Manhattan's West Side. The park features lush horticulture, artworks, seasonal food vendors, community programing, and unique views of the Hudson River and New York City skyline. The High Line runs between Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
