HIGH LINE IS OPEN!

The HIGH LINE is finally OPEN!!! Shout out to NY1 news for the heads up this past week. It’s pouring out now, not but earlier today the sun peeked just enough for an afternoon stroll. Monday’s rock because it’s like a Sunday for us. Babe and I get to go on dates! We’re all about it, especially when it involves scenic views like today. As a designated footprint couple we rode our silver limo downtown, and entered at Ganesvoort St to cross the park down to the 20th street exit. The view is DOPE, great for long walks, flicks, lounging, napping, and stealing some wifi on your lunch break. The High Line is a positive glimpse of NYC turning green. We’ve been waiting for stuff like this to finally take shape ( even if it’s not in our own hoods just yet ) I’m a true believer in “leading by example” and SO…I look forward to the day when ALL cities, and hoods go GREEN!

HISTORY:
The High Line was built in the 1930s, as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project called the West Side Improvement. It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan’s largest industrial district. No trains have run on the High Line since 1980. Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit group, formed in 1999 when the historic structure was under threat of demolition. Friends of the High Line works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the structure as an elevated public park
