Camminando | New York High Line Opening on June 8

The High Line park in Chelsea opened to the public on June 8. After several years of petitions, public debates, design competitions and major fundraising, the abandoned elevated railways tracks are successfully being transformed into a public park. The first section opened to the public runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 20th Street.
Already the community are greatly enjoying the pedestrian only elevated park, an oasis in the busy neighborhood down below.

The High Line is opened to the public every day from 7am to 10pm.
