High Line Park @ Chelsea, New York

New Yorkers are very creative in changing something which is abandon to something useful to the society. The city turns an abandon railway into an elevated public park which have nice view over the city. The land here is so expensive so its wise idea to convert abandon area into something useful to the public. Besides that, the park also contribute to the real estate development around the surrounding area. The parks is currently runs from Gansevoort Street, one block below West 12th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard. It shares some of the similarity with the Promenade Plantée in Paris.

When I was there, there is some charity event going on in the park. This indirectly make the society more aware of their neighbourhood and make them feel responsible towards each other.
