The High Line is an inspired public park built on an abandoned elevated freight line above the city streets. The park runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District then weaves through Chelsea, catalyzing exciting new development along its way. It has received more than $190 million in public and private funding to date and is one of the world’s most successful urban revitalization projects.
One-third of the High Line Is on Hudson Yards
The High Line’s third and final phase is its most compelling as it wraps around Hudson Yards, offering panoramic views of the streets and the Hudson River. Opened to the public in late 2014, this portion of the park boasts sweeping views of the monumental construction on the rail yard.
Millions to Converge at Hudson Yards
With over four million visitors annually, the High Line has already stimulated $5 billion in new development along its path helping Chelsea evolve into one of the city’s hippest neighborhoods. With the new Whitney Museum opened at the High Line’s southern-most entrance in 2015, visitors and patrons of the arts can walk from West 14th Street in Chelsea, through the city’s densest gallery district, up to Hudson Yards.
