Walk the Tracks: the High Line Garden Park

As someone with a soft spot for big cities and railways, I particularly like the High Line. This New York city garden park was created on a railway that fell out of use in 1980:

Planning for the High Line in its current form began in 2000 and by now it's one of the top destinations for tourists and New Yorkers alike:

I love these overgrown tracks, and all that green breaking through the slits in the paths:

I think that kid in a yellow tee shirt is doing my favorite thing -- talking to plants:


If you happen to be in New York, travel the High Line. Happy journey.

Live for the Love of it,

  1. How nice to see the greenery so vibrant and full.New York lines rather staid and dry full of cigarette butts in the coaches the last I was there. Hopefully some changes now! Thanks for sharing Sasha!
