Photos of New York’s High Line Park

November 17, 2010 - 1:11 pm

In September, I visited New York City, and the highlight of my trip was High Line Park, an elevated, linear public place created from an abandoned railroad track. You can read about the history of the park here. CityBeat brought up the park in its editorial this week as potential inspiration for the rooftop park that’s part of the plan to expand the San Diego Convention Center. Lo and behold, it turns out the Convention Center Corp. uses a rendering of High Line Park in its outreach presentation.

Anyhoo, I thought I’d share some of my photos of High Line Park so you can see what I’m talking about:

 

More photos after the jump…

 

Here's how they're building around (and over) the park.

My favorite feature: chaise lounges on wheels mounted on the old train track

 

This is one of the "art" installations—super cool
