The High Line is an elevated freight rail line transformed into a public park on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. The High Line is built on a disused (last train ran in 1980), southern viaduct section of the New York Central Railroad line known as the West Side Line which opened in 1934. Originating in the Lower West Side of Manhattan, the park runs from Gansevoort Street – three blocks below 14th St, in the Meatpacking District – through Chelsea to the northern edge of the West Side Yard on 34th St near the Javits Center. The West Side Line formerly extended south to a railroad terminal at Spring St, just north of Canal St, and north to 35th St at the site of the Javits Center. Most of the viaduct's southern section was demolished in 1960, and the section north of 34th St was demolished and reconfigured in 1981. For more information visit; FRIENDS OF THE HIGH LINE .
Note; The High Line doesn't allow bikes. Pedestrian only.
