High-Line Park

We walked the open length of the High-Line Park this evening.  It was awesome!!!  It is interesting architecturally and they did a great job with the plants selected for it.  The park used to be an elevated freight rail line, that was stopped in 1954.  The park is a walking path that is designed to look like the rail lines did when they were overgrown with wild plants.  I can not give it enough superlatives.  It is such a neat idea and it has become a wonderful community area.  It runs along 10th avenue from Gainsvoort to 23rd street.  They are working on section 2 which will continue from 23rd to 34th street.  Here is a link to the associations website:
