On Tuesday I wrote about the High Line park opening in Manhattan. The park is on Manhattan's West Side and sits on an abandoned, elevated railway bed built in the 1930s to get trains of city streets. With a little more time to dig around this evening I found some more photo galleries of the park (linked below) and this Inhabitat video that offers a tour and some background.
