"Friends of the High Line (FHL) and the City of New York have jointly begun the process to select a design team to create a master plan for the High Line’s conversion to public open space. The High Line, a 1.5-mile-long elevated rail structure on Manhattan's West Side, was constructed in the 1930s as part of one of New York City's largest investments in transportation infrastructure, called the West Side Improvement Project. No trains have run on it in over 20 years. A lush urban wilderness, nearly seven acres in total, has seeded itself on the High Line's tracks."
