High Line 2007

July 23rd, 2007 by

6 years ago, on a hot and muggy night, myself and a few other insomniac explorers snuck up onto and wandered down the high line... Back then, the entire route was abandoned and left to rot for 20 years.

Today though, it's a different story. This once forgotten corner of the city is now being revived as an overhead park. It looks like it'll be a pretty nice place ones it's done, and will enhance the west side of Manhattan. Not bad for a place that Rudy Ghooliani tried to give away to developers in one of his last acts as mayor of NYC... (and yes, I really did need to take yet another jab at that shortsighted moron).

Before it can be open as a public park, a lot of work has to be done to clean up the old weeds, rubbish, rails and ballast rocks. The start of this work of course prompted a surprise and entirely uncalledfor broad daylight inspection of the progress on this project thus far. this inspection reveals that this location is still full of fun times to be had before you know, the 'normal' people are given access...
