High Line Park in New York’s Meatpacking district – such an amazing place to visit.  The park was originally constructed in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District in the 1930s to lift dangerous freight trains from city streets. Abandoned in the 1980’s the High Line went into decay but was re-discovered after photographer,  Joel Sternfeld, captured the beauty of this site as it was overgrown with wildflowers.

Once the High Line is complete, it will stretch for nearly a mile and half running through the West Side neighborhoods.  The landscape and design was created by James Corner Feild Operations  and Diller Scofidio + Renfro

Here are some photos of the Highline in the evening.
