The plans for the final expansion of the High Line park in Manhattan are in place.

The group "Friends of the High Line" displayed update designs at a community meeting Monday night.

The park, which begins in the Meatpacking District on the West Side, will be extended up to 34th Street.

Last week, the city acquired the rail yards from CSX Transportation.

Construction is expected to begin later this year.
