High Line & 23rd Street - Chelsea - New York

The High Line, an aerial greenway in the heart of New York City, is a very successful and popular destination not only for tourists but also for locals. It is an oasis above Manhattan's West Side streets that offers interesting viewpoints and relaxing areas of greenery (trees, flowers, grass). The High Line goes from goes from Gansevoort Street in the West Village through Chelsea to 30th Street Street and up to 34th Street between 11th Avenue and West Side highway.

At the end of the day, when the sun starts setting, people are wandering about and watching the warm colors lighting Manhattan buildings, revealing New York's varied architecture, from pre-war to modern.

Here, on the right, we can see London Terrace, which occupies an entire city block on 23rd street between 9th and 10th avenues, and was at the time of completion in 1930 the largest building complex in New York City.
In contrast, in the middle and slightly to the left , the modern architecture of HL23 is fluid. The tower has become a new beacon of the High Line since its completion in 2011.
