One of the most frequent comments we hear about walking the [New York City] High Line’s one-mile length is how much the experience changes, going from the hemmed in walkway at its northern end, where new construction and old warehouses closely surround the park and keep views and light narrow and limited, to the southern end, where the High Line is bathed in sunlight and afforded broad views across the low-rise Meatpacking District to the east and to the Hudson River to the west.

But thanks to several actions on the part of the City, that’s all about to change.  The southern end of the High Line will soon transform dramatically, as what are now some of the most open and exposed parts of the park will be surrounded on all sides by large new developments.
