The NYC Highline is a 1.45 mile long elevated, linear shaped park on the West Side of Manhattan. The park is an architectural collaboration between Piet Oudolf, James Corner Field Operations, and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The park was projected on top of an abandoned NYC railroad spur and has become a favourite ever since it opened up. The abandoned spur has been reinvented as a “living element” as it mixed in elements of ecology, urban design, and landscape architecture.
A park as sophisticated as this one is definitely a must see for anyone coming to New York for the first time, and for the locals its a perfect place for a jog, coffee break or dog walk. This green trail is packed with vegetation that is supplying oxygen for all of its visitors. Well…unless you go there during the winter time like we did.
The cold aside, we had a great time capturing this park for you in crispy 4K. Enjoy!
