The High Line is an elevated public park built on a freight rail line on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.
I think that this is an amazing and innovative way of repurposing something that has had a great impact on an area in the past. Having been unused for years, The High Line now plays a central role in the Meatpacking district again.
Many cities could benefit of this way of reinventing industrial sites no longer in use, into something that fits into the modern society.
