The High Line at Chelsea, New York

Instead of going to MOMA, we decided to venture to places which we have not been to before. That brought us to Chelsea and the new hotspot in NYC, The High Line!

Here is the history of The High Line.

” The High Line was built in the 1930s, as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project called the West Side Improvement. It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan’s largest industrial district. No trains have run on the High Line since 1980. Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit group, formed in 1999 when the historic structure was under threat of demolition. Friends of the High Line works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the structure as an elevated public park. “

Part of the railway tracks are still visible!

All thanks to the good people from Friends of the High Line, New Yorkers get a green pocket of elevated public park in a historic structure! If only they can preserve our KTM railway into green pockets too!

If you have been to NYC a couple of times and will be back again, you should probably drop by The High Line! Thank you Lady J, for the recommendation!
