Last Phase of The High Line

The High Line – the conversion of the disused elevated freight-railway in Manhattan into a nature park – is nearing completion.  It is a beautiful idea, an elegant combination of the old industrial infrastructure supporting an injection of nature, all in the depths of the most iconic of modern cities.  It is one of the reasons why I want to go back to New York.

The final section is due to open in late 2014 and will include a bowl-shaped structure called The Spur, which will become the access point at the railway yards and allow walkers to sit encompassed by foliage in the heart of the city.  Maybe that would be a good time to visit…
