2nd Section of The High Line to Open in Spring

The High Line park in New York has been an enormous success, attracting 2 million visitors so far. Tom Topousis got to take a tour of the 2nd section of the park under construction, stretching from 20th to 30th Sts.

Park designers are using existing elements of the infrastructure from the former rail line in their plans:

"Between 22nd and 23rd streets, park planners have turned an old railroad siding that was once used to reach into the adjacent warehouses into a feature called the "seating steps" that will rise above a lawn that lifts up on a small hillside," writes Topousis.
