Floating its way through a show of high rise art, the High Line park opened up a new section to the public. Following the opening of Section 1 in 2009, the High Line opens up Section 2 to the public Wednesday. Friends of the High Line, Robert Hammond and Joshua David will greet the first visitors as they saunter through the high-rise park.

Section 2 introduces 10 new blocks from 20th Street to 30th Street on the Lower West side. A treat for the eyes, city officials see this as a park with potential. In addition to natural beauty, it brings new retail space, new restaurants and generated 8000 construction jobs and 12,000 additional jobs in the Chelsea and Meatpacking neighborhoods.

Talk about being green, entertaining and socially responsible- its High Line floating you above the rest of city life!
