πŸ“ On This Day πŸ“

One year ago on June 4th, 2019

The final section of the High Line opens, completing the park

The small spur extends east from the main line of the park at 30th Street toward Tenth Avenue. This section of the High Line could safely be opened now that construction on the eastern part of Hudson Yards has been completed, since it passes underneath the new building housing the headquarters of fashion brand Coach. After emerging from the building, the walkway opens up to a large plaza area above Tenth Avenue that will host a rotating selection of public art, with plans for more upcoming events to be held there.
