A Photo Essay of The High Line Park, NYC

I love it when functionally obsolete industrial space gets upcycled into something groovy, new and useful. The Edison, a bar/nightclub located in an old power plant in Los Angeles is an excellent example, and so is The High Line, located on the west side of Manhattan in New York City, which I visited for the first time last week.

The High Line is a particularly cool and innovative public park built above on a old set of freight train tracks in the hipster centric Meatpacking District. Some of the original architectural artifacts remain, and it’s a very interesting example of industrial re-use. There are also lounge chairs, benches, a pedestrian walkway, and a billboard used as a modern art installation amongst the patches green grass.  Here are some images from my stroll along the aerial greenway.
