Smile NEW YORK | Redevelopment of the High Line

The redevelopment of the elevated rail line on Manhattan's west side into a park has begun. Below are some images taken from the site of Friends of the High Line...

Rails, embedded in concrete, await removal at 13th Street, looking South




Soil and gravel ballast, after rails have been removed at 14th Street




Gravel ballast is piled up at 17th Street, where the High Line narrows




Wooden railroad ties are piled up for removal




High Line spurs across 10th Avenue, looking South




Removal of gravel ballast exposes the top layer of concrete




Rails are stored and stacked




All rail sections have been mapped and tagged prior to removal
