Slideshow: The High Line’s Section Two In New York City

on Tuesday, Jun. 7th

The second section of the High Line opened today, extending the pedestrian masterpiece all the way to West 30th street.

From The High Line’s blog:

The opening of the new section doubles the length of the public park. After years of planning, design and construction, the High Line is now one mile long, running from Gansevoort Street to West 30th Street, connecting the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen.

New access points are located at West 23rd Street, West 26th Street, West 28th Street, and West 30th Street, supplementing the five existing access points at Gansevoort Street, West 14th Street, West 16th Street, and West 18th Street, and West 20th Street. All access points will be open daily during the public park’s summer operating hours, from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

Chalk this up on the things-to-see list when we’re back in NYC. Gorgeous slideshow below.
