Starting December 1, through the duration of the winter, the High Line will be open from 7am to 8pm daily

This now wonderful park has changed the nature of 10th Avenue in recent years. With views of the Hudson River to glimpses into multi-million dollar apartments along the way, tourist and city residents alike get to enjoy a different perspective on Manhattan’s west side. The landscaping is also delightful.

From the 1850s to 1929, trains ran along 10th Avenue providing transportation to manufacturers along the shipyards. Collisions occurred frequently and as a result, Train Cowboys were hired to ride in front of the trains to alert street traffic and pedestrians that the train was coming.  Following public discourse the city spent approximately $2 Billion in todays dollars in 1930 to build the High Line as a Rail Link from 34th St down to Spring St, delivering raw materials and picking up finished goods directly from the factory floors (the rail line ran into and through the buildings).

The Superior Ink residential condominium today resides on the site of a former Nabisco factory which was served by the original High Line.  The last train ran on the line in 1980.  Click here for more High Line History  – Tony Sargent
