HIGH LINE CONSTRUCTION UPDATE


In coming weeks, visitors to the Meatpacking District may see new activity under the High Line. In August, the City's contractors will begin to tear down the portion of the out-of-use meat processing plant at 820 Washington Street (above). This area under the High Line, at the corner of Gansevoort and Washington Streets, will ultimately be used for the southernmost public entrance to the High Line, with an open public plaza at street level at the corner.
