High Line Park NYC

While in the meat packing district.. We headed to the High Line Park.. What a smart way to use up space..

“The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets.”   “When all sections are complete, the High Line will be a mile-and-a-half-long elevated park, running through the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen. It features an integrated landscape, designed by landscape architects James Corner Field Operations, with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, combining meandering concrete pathways with naturalistic plantings.”

Walking the High Line that evening we got to see a spectacular performance of ceremonial colors transitioning from day in to night..
