Today the City and Friends of the High Line announced the acquisition of the third and final portion of the abandoned rail line from CSX, securing once and for all its future as a linear park. The section, which extends into what will become Hudson Yards, will add another half mile to the leafy line. CSX donated the line to the city. Final design work for the third phase is underway. Construction is set to begin later this year.

    Being a new yorker, i’m honestly happy that the high line is getting its face lift. Do people remember when it was a crime-ridden neighborhood no one bothered going to? well… that was all of manhattan at one point in time, but now it’s really turned itself around. i did some research on the high line, if anyone is interested, and found this great mash-up of info on the area! http://newconstructionmanhattan.com/blog/nyc-real-estate-blog/2009/high-line-video-history-high-line-article-roundup-apartments-near-the-high-line
