is a mile long urban park in New York on the site of what was an elevated freight railroad spur. I came across this when I was interweb surfing and thought it was amazing. What’s more, they have an amazing website which you can visit here, to know more about The High Line.
Here is some basic information about The High Line taken from their site:
The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition. It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy.
In addition to overseeing maintenance, operations, and public programming for the park, Friends of the High Line works to raise the essential private funds to support more than 90 percent of the park’s annual operating budget, and to advocate for the preservation and transformation of the , the third and final section of the historic structure, which runs between West 30th and West 34th Streets.
