Why choose a trail at Beginning of High Line?

The High Line is a public park built on an elevated section of a disused railway line in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It was opened in 2009 after a two-year renovation. The park extends from Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.

The High Line was originally built in the 1930s as a freight railway line, and it was used to transport goods between warehouses in the Meatpacking District and factories in Midtown Manhattan. The line was abandoned in 1980, and it fell into disrepair.

In 1999, a group of community activists formed the Friends of the High Line, and they began campaigning to save the line from demolition. In 2002, the New York City government agreed to fund a $152 million restoration project. The project was completed in 2009, and the High Line was opened to the public.

The High Line is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in New York City, and it attracts more than five million visitors each year. The park features a variety of gardens, art installations, and performance spaces, and it has been praised for its innovative design and for its role in revitalizing the Chelsea neighborhood.
