Highline Opens in New York


30 feet up in the air and 10 years in the making, New York City’s newest park: Highline is a wonder in urban development and an example of how to meet the changing needs of society. The Highline was 1.45 miles of suspended railroad track that was built in the mid-19th century and then discarded in 1980. In 1999, a community-organized non-profit formed to start plans on saving the tracks from demolition.
