HIGH_180815_25.JPG: YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
To our friends, neighbors, and visitors, we say: you are welcome here. No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, how much money you have, what your religious beliefs are, or where you are from, the High Line is for you.
Like many, we at Friends of the High Line are concerned about the divisive, hateful speech and actions we are hearing and witnesses across our country. While these feelings are not new for many, we recognize that this is a crucial moment to take a stand for what we believe is right. It is important that we do not become complacent in our mission to cultivate equitable and open public spaces that reflect and celebrate the diversity of our communities.
Friends of the High Line is committed to reexamining and strengthening our continuing efforts to ensure the High Line is a safe and welcoming place for everyone. If you have suggestions for how we can make this public space better, please send us an email with your thoughts: firstname.lastname@example.org.

HIGH_180815_50.JPG: Welcome to the Park That Almost Wasn't:
Built on a historic, elevated freight line destined for demolition, the High Line has inspired millions worldwide as an example of how cities can reuse industrial spaces to create beautiful, hybrid spaces.
The High Line is run by the non-profit conservancy Friends of the High Line, which relies on individual donations to fund all the park's operations and its cultural, art, and community programs.

Wikipedia Description: High Line (New York City)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The High Line (also known as the High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) New York City linear park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. Inspired by the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée (tree-lined walkway), a similar project in Paris completed in 1993, the High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park.
The High Line Park is built on the disused southern portion of the West Side Line running to the Lower West Side of Manhattan. It runs from Gansevoort Street – three blocks below 14th Street – in the Meatpacking District, through Chelsea, to the northern edge of the West Side Yard on 34th Street near the Javits Convention Center. An unopened spur extends above 30th Street to Tenth Avenue. Formerly, the West Side Line went as far south as a railroad terminal to Spring Street just north of Canal Street, however most of the lower section was demolished in 1960, with another small portion of the lower section being demolished in 1991.
Repurposing of the railway into an urban park began construction in 2006, with the first phase opening in 2009, and the second phase opening in 2011. The third and final phase officially opened to the public on September 21, 2014. A short stub above Tenth Avenue and 30th Street is still closed as of September 2014, but will open by 2017, once the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project is complete. The project has spurred real estate development in the neighborhoods that lie along the line, and increased real estate values and prices along the route, as a "halo effect". As of September 2014, the park gets nearly 5 million visitors annually.
