High Line - park, is in Manhattan and located at the level of 10 meters from the ground.
The park is divided into the territory of the former railway line which was closed in 1980. Initially it served for cargo transportation that heavily polluted nearby territory, but eventually fell into disrepair. Rails and the bridge threatened to collapse. After a long trial, the park was opened in 2009, and 50 million dollars was allocated for its construction. Today it has a length of 2.33 km. Its very location and construction is unique and you won't find such place anywhere else in the world. It is situated on the bridge and goes along the railway road. One of the innovations of the park is that the flowers and trees grow on their self-seeding. Park keepers only look after it doing some trimming. After the conversion of the railway into the park, there were changes in the nearby neighborhoods. Hotels and galleries appeared Instead of factories. The Park can also be visited by people with disabilities, and 9 entrances of which are equipped to meet their needs. If you get hungry or tired, there is a café on-site (open in summer), benches, chairs, trays with souvenirs. Dog walking is prohibited. Entrance to the park is free.
