Field Operations – High Line
Traveling Exhibition-Selected Entry
The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. The first section of the High Line opened in June of 2009, and the second section of the High Line opened in June of 2011. Running between Gansevoort and West 30th Streets, the High Line is now one mile in length, connecting three neighborhoods along the west side. Friends of the High Line continues to advocate for the preservation and transformation of the High Line at the Rail Yards, the third and final section of the historic structure, which runs between West 30th and West 34th Streets.
