Photos of the High Line

The folks over at Curbed have a nice gallery of photos showing the construction going on the High Line. From the looks of it there’s still a long way to go, but they’re making some good progress so far.

For those who don’t know, the High Line used to be an elevated railway used by freight trains that went into disuse in the 80’s. But a group of concerned citizens called Friends of the High Line decided to put this old landmark to use and proposed to turn the space into an elevated park. I’m a huge fan of taking existing spaces and making them new and exciting again, so I’m really excited to see this project come to a conclusion. Parts of the High Line might be finished by this summer, but as far as I can tell there’s no FINAL final date.
