Ever been on 10th Avenue anywhere between Gansevoort Street and 34th street, looked up and wondered what that elevated black structure was? That's the high line. Originally built in the 1930s to get freight trains off the city's streets, the high line saw its last train in 1980. The structure was saved from demolition by the Friends of the High Line Conservancy and as now been converted to a public park area. This month the High Line was opened to the public and it's a must see. Wild flowers and seating can be found in abundance. Access Points are located at Gansevoort Street, 14th Street, 16th Street, 18th Street, and 20th Street with elevator access available at 16th street. When the rain finally goes away venture over for a looksy.
