THE HIGH LINE
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

A decommissioned elevated railway on Manhattan’s West Side that still carried freight traffic till 1980, the High Line was repurposed as a green oasis amid the sea of downtown buildings. 30 feet above street-level, the train tracks were preserved and integrated into the design of the park over a distance of twenty blocks. Lounge chairs beckon sunbathers, and a window overlooking the avenue of traffic below turns the city into a stage.
