Take the High Line! Check Out Manhattan's Newest Park (Slideshow)

TreeHugger has been covering The High Line since the very start of our existence—all the way from 2004, when we called it New York's Agritectural Space, to various benefits Friends of the High Line had along the way. Well, now the first section of the park is open, from Washington & Gansevoort Streets to 20th street. I had a chance to stroll along Wednesday afternoon and check it out, and in short The High Line is pretty amazing.
