During my visit to New York last weekend, I went back to the High Line as I heard that the city’s extraordinary public space now extends all the way to 34th Street at the Hudson Rail Yards. The northernmost extension opened on September 21 and provides another new perspective in experiencing the city. The High Line public park is built on a historic freight rail line elevated above Manhattan’s West Side, running from West 34th Street (between 10th and 12th Avenues) and all the way south to Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. The first section from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street opened in June 2009. The landscape architecture firm that designed the park is James Corner Field Operations. Over the years, several buildings with stunning architecture have been developed to embrace the park.
