Details

Built in the 1930s as part of a West Side improvement project, this former elevated railroad removed the danger of trains running through the streets of Manhattan`s largest industrial district and connected directly to the area`s factories and warehouses. However, with the growth of trucking, the railroad declined and eventually closed in 1980. Through the Friends of the High Line and the City of New York, the old rail line has been rescued and reinvented as a vibrant greenway that has helped to revitalize the neighborhood.
