Video: Opening Day at the High Line

By and

The High Line opened up to the public today, so naturally we sent our man on the street Tim Murphy to get people’s reactions. What did he find? One man called it “absolutely delightful.” Another described it as “post-apocalyptic.” This other dude even saw what might have been a naked woman in the window of the nearby Standard Hotel. Overall, a success! Watch the video to tour the gleaming, brand-new park (or to see Tim’s best Gene Kelly impersonation).

If you're planning on visiting the High Line Park this week, you may want to look at our architectural guide to what you'll be looking at, and what you can expect to see spring up around it in the coming years.
