The revival of a railroad turned into a strip of nature a great place to chill out, meet up with people, take in New York city, and to take a peaceful walk along above the busy streets. Quite a cool place!
In 2012, New York Mayor Bloomberg himself stated that while the stretch between 12th Street and 30th Street on the West side of Manhattan was refurbished and turned into what is now known as the High Line Park, crime has gone down considerably and new projects have seen the light of day.
The revival of the New York High Line Park is not only become a tourist attraction, it has great impact on surrounding economic and environment as well; it has started to attract new residents and new businesses in a neighborhood that is considered safe and that is always a plus.
Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when this historic structure was under the threat of demolition. The outcome of these effort has lead to present amazing result that both residents and visitors can walk on this beautiful High Line surrounded by greenery and what once used to be an abandoned eyesore since the West Side Line was closed in 1929.
Today when we take a walk almost along this revived highline, we will see lots of families and teenagers just wandering around the greenery and looking out at the various views. A number of exits so it is easy to get on and off wherever is convenient to you - highly recommend a visit!
This unique "fun and interesting" park has been created and developed into a pretty and serene area in the heart of Chelsea.
Now this innovative project which was funded by the City of New York has given new life to a struggling neighborhood and has completely revitalized the area.
The revival - all that was done was to rethink our ideas of how to use existing infrastructure and put it to a better and more acceptable use with added value through urban revitalization project, rather then just simply remove and replace it with empty spaces and so on.
Very important to bring back new life to what once was a very thriving corridor!
