The High Line, also known as High Line Park, is a linear green public space located on an elevated train track in Manhattan. It is accessible by stairs and elevators and offers views of the city and the
Hudson River. It has become a tourist destination and has fueled explosive real estate development along its course. The park, whose construction and maintenance is financed by private donors, runs from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street, along the Far West Side, through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea. The park, landscaped with plants that grew on the disused tracks, opened in phases in 2009 and 2011, and 2014. Joshua David and Robert Hammond conceived the idea of the park in 1999 and formed a nonprofit, Friends of the High Line, to execute the vision. The area along the park, sometimes called the starchitecture district, is dotted with buildings designed by celebrity architects. These include 100 Eleventh Avenue, designed by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel, 200 Eleventh Avenue, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, the Metal Shutter Houses on West 19th Street, designed by Shigeru Ban, and the Neil Denari-designed HL23 on West 23rd Street. The Standard Hotel straddles the High Line at West 13th Street. In May 2015, The Whitney Museum of American Art relocated to a building designed by Renzo Piano, located at 99 Gansevoort. -GB
