New York’s High Line

Thanks to the High Line on Manhattan’s West Side, the confines of city living disappear and give way to a new perspective of the Big Apple. Perched 25 feet above the ground, the High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line that runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. As visitors walk along tended plants they can take in beautiful views of the Hudson River as well as commissioned billboards and installations by artists like John Baldessari and Carol Bove.
