Work on the final phase of the High Line park begins in Manhattan Thursday.

The last stretch of the park, built on an old freight rail line, will run between West 30th Street and 34th Street.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other elected officials attended the groundbreaking ceremony.

School children tossed wildflowers and native grass seeds onto the High Line as part of the festivities.
