One of the high points of my recent trip to NY was going into Manhattan and walking the High Line. The High Line is an elevated park that was created from an old, derelict, elevated train line that was slated for demolition. Construction began in April of 2006 and is ongoing with the development of the third phase which is planned to be opened sometime in 2014. What a treat to visit and walk the one mile of completed gardens that wind through Manhattan. It's a fabulous space in the middle of the city that every gardener should make a point to visit. The plantings are lush, appropriate and beautifully maintained.
I'm looking forward to visiting again when the new section is opened.
