      In 1934 o crescimento do maior industrial district de Manhattan – the Meatpacking District –   exigia um system para transport products. Assim nasce the High Line, uma line elevada e exclusiva for trains que fica near the Hudson River e connects os bairros de ‘Meatpacking District’ and Chelsea.

      In the 1980s o último train transports turkeys congelados. Os trains são substituídos por refrigerated trucks, ideal to transport food congelada, a nova onda do moment. A high line é desativada.

      Embora muitos fossem in favor de sua demolition, many people lutaram pela preservation da High Line e por sua transformation in a public space.

03

      Little by little, os 2,5 km da High Line começam a ser transformed into a public area. O park é aos poucos open to the public: 2009, 2011 and 2014.

      Today this elevated park abriga music shows, sports, food events and many cultural activities.
