The section which opened June 7, 2011 "more than doubles the length of the promenade," writes Alex Goldmark at Good Magazine. The park now stretches from 14th to 30th Street.

From post by Alex Goldmark:

"Even more than the first section, this one honors the original rugged pride of the industrial past with exposed tracks and echoes of the days when New York got its frozen turkeys by rail, and sent out oreos to the world in boxcars. A few spots also retain the unkempt defiance of the unplanned greenway that sprouted up top after decades of neglect let trees and wildflowers take over."
