Travel: High Line, NYC

The High Line was originally created in the 1930s to elevate the freight rails off the street in New York City.

It is now an elevated green space, that once complete will be a 1.5 mile long stretch of green space, benches, and meandering concrete pathways.

Above are the elevated benches that seem to grow out of the concrete pathways.

Existing railway tracks left with new vegetation plantings.

Frank Gehry IAC Building was completed in 2007. This is Frank Gehry's first commercial office building in New York City. It is also his first building skin constructed entirely out of a glass curtain wall system.

The Chelsea Modern Apartments were designed by female Architect Audrey Matlock. She has designed over 50 projects worldwide.
