|This is Manhattan, 2016.|
|And this is also Manhattan, 2016, as seen from |
the city's new High Line Park
|New York's Standard, High Line Hotel rises astraddle |
High Line Park bringing a welcome "gentrification"
to what were formerly downtrodden neighborhoods.
|The red spots on the left map mark entry/exit locations. The map|
at right places the park in relationship to the rest of the city.
|The West Side Line, a disused eyesore antiquated by the |
rapid growth of interstate highways and the trucking industry.
|Amid the local plant life, High Line Park designers |
frequently left intact reminders of the park's former use.
|A park entrance can be seen along with various other |
sweeping vistas adding variety to the pedestrian concourse.
|Park enhancements looming in the near future or already completed.|
|The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the winter,|
10 p.m. in the spring and fall, and 11 p.m. in the summer,
|The other end of the line...for now.|
|And please don't pick the flowers.|
