About the Blog

Railroad

The first section of the High Line, New York City's park in the sky, opened in June, 2009.  This elevated, linear park is built on a 1930s former freight rail structure on Manhattan's West Side. It's owned by the City of New York, and operated by the non-profit Friends of the High Line, in partnership with the Department of Parks & Recreation.

Written by Friends of the High Line's full-time staff members, the High Line Blog is our way to keep you updated on the park. Here you'll find park news, construction updates from Section 2, news from our office, press, photos and video, events, and interesting things happening in our community. Like the High Line, it's a work in progress. Check back periodically, and we hope you can visit the High Line and see for yourself!
