Many people know the story of the High Line (if not, learn it on my tour!)... a former freight rail line, abandoned for decades, reborn as NYC's "park in the sky". But the story continues.
Since the High Line park first opened in 2009, it has only continued to grow. A second phase opened in 2011, and a third phase (extending the park to Hudson Railyards section) opened in 2014. But the park is still not yet complete. There is a final spur, running off the railyards end, that runs along West 30th St toward 10th Avenue. Work on that section had to put on hold while the 10 Hudson Yards skyscraper went up next door. But with that completed, the High Line can finally complete this spur.
The park has begun putting up banners previewing their plans:
So what do you think? As a visitor or a local, will this expansion make you more likely to come back?
