The High Line Elevated Park opened in 2009 and completed in 2014, it is a green area located on an old railway line that stopped being used in the 80s.
This modern urban development project has become a leisure area in New York City. Located between Chelsea and Meatpacking District, it is more than 2 kilometers long and is filled with different gardens with flowers, plants, trees and shrubs that change colour according to the season of the year.
With different access points and many benches to sit on, it is a good place to admire some of New York’s buildings, such as Zaha Hadid or The Vessel. In the area you can also enjoy Chelsea Market, a shopping center with many restaurants.
