High Line Park in Manhattan
An elevated railroad out of use has become a recreational park on the West Side in New York. It is known as the High Line, and this area was completely rebuilt. Since its opening in 2009, the city has been integrated with a beautiful tour of Chelsea and the trendy Meatpacking district.
New York High LineThe New York HL stands out for its sustainable design. Also for its artistic design: the High Line Art. It is an art program that includes works, exhibitions, videos and a series of panoramas designed by renowned artists. All creative ideas to attract the public in this unique space in history and design.
Allen Ruppersberg, Paola Pivi and Gilbert & George are several of the artists who have participated in the panoramic designs of High Line Art. You can also see the works commissioned for the High Line, some permanent and some temporary.
The Meatpacking district has good restaurants and cafes. So it is advisable to start the tour at the first entrance under the Standard Hotel. Then continue to Chelsea where the tour can continue with visits to the galleries that the area offers. See map

The High Line was inspired by the 4.7 km (2.9 mi) long Promenade plantée (tree-lined walkway), a similar project in Paris completed in 1993. Repurposing the railway into an urban park began in 2006 and opened in phases during 2009, 2011, and 2014. The Spur, an extension of the High Line that originally connected with the Morgan General Mail Facility at Tenth Avenue and 30th Street, opened on June 4, 2019, as the final part of the park to open.
