We will meet as a group at the stairs to The High Line (elevator is available) on 23rd Street and 10th Avenue on Sunday, October 20 at 10:00 a.m. and walk south to Gansevoort Street. We will discuss the High Line’s history as we explore its art installations, plantings and views.
The High Line, a public park built on an elevated freight rail line along Manhattan’s West Side, is owned by the City of New York with a “path” that meanders between West 30th Street and Gansevoort Street. Running through three of Manhattan’s neighborhoods – Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton, West Chelsea and the Meatpacking District – The High Line was built in the 1930’s when these neighborhoods were defined by their industrial and transportation roles. Now these streets are home to galleries, hotels, boutiques and restaurants. We will experience a remarkable urban – and almost pastoral – transformation of a once active then abandoned rail line above the streets of New York.
