This is the second of two posts featuring the High Line in Manhattan. The series of photos in this post continues the journey through the park that started from the Gansevoort stairs entrance walking north to 30th Street.

The below four-minute fly-through video provides a view of the designs of the High Line's Sections 1 and 2.

The High Line is a public park owned by the City of New York. The friends of the High Line conservancy is in charge of raising private funds for the park and overseeing its maintenance and operations in agreement with the city.
