About High Line Park:
New York City has many things, but one of them is not an abundance of space. For that reason, finding creative uses for abandoned spaces is something that greatly benefits the City. High Line Park is an Attraction in New York that is a wonderful example of this.
The Park’s 395 acres were once part of a freight rail line. This spot, which is elevated above the City streets, had been out of use for years when the project to convert it to a park began in earnest in 2006. The first phase of the park opened in 2006, and the final phase opened in September of 2014.
Visitors can browse the gardens, the temporary art installations, and just enjoy spending some time outdoors above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side. High Line Park offers many special Activities and Events throughout the year. Some are one offs while others last for months. One popular example is the stargazing that takes place every Tuesday from April through October. Show up at this Attraction in New York City from dusk until closing and enjoy gazing through high-powered telescopes.
Public tours of High Line Park take place each Tuesday and Saturday from May through September. This is a chance to learn about how the space went from freight rail line to urban green space. Other popular Activities and Events include Gentlemen’s Boxing, Garden Tours, and Haunted High Line Halloween. Check the Park’s website for a full list of upcoming Activities and Events.
