High Line Elevated Park

High Line is an urban park built on an elevated section of the City’s disused Central Railroad. The elevated platform stopped being used in 1980. Twenty-three years later several ideas of possible usage were discussed and it was decided that it would be transformed into a park. The urban park project was finished in 2014.

High Line Park is 1.45 mile-long (2.33 km) and runs from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street in Lower West Side of Manhattan. This greenway is divided in three sections and has several accesses all along the park.

High Line has benches all along its path to sit and enjoy the views or lie and sunbathe, and has become a favourite among New Yorkers during the summer months.

The park was designed by James Corner Field Operations; and the first section was opened on 9 June, 2009.

High Line Elevated Park, inaugurado en 2009, es una de las zonas verdes más bonitas en Nueva York. Fue erguido sobre una línea de ferrocarril antigua.

Chelsea Park Acquired by Parks more than 100 years ago, Chelsea Park remains one of the most popular and widely used parks in lower Manhattan. With basketball courts, baseball diamonds, handball courts, multi-purpose asphalt surfaces, and plenty of space to sit down and take a break, be sure you bring your best game. The park has a strong place in the history of the neighborhood. Its first playground was built in 1910 and designated as an open space for the residents of the crowded tenement district. In its early days, the newly formed Board of Recreation organized competitions that drew thousands of spectators and participants. It was in this hub of activity that the Chelsea Memorial Committee donated the centerpiece of the park, the World War I memorial known as the Chelsea Doughboy Statue, which still stands today.
Stairs (28th Street) Chelsea Park Memorial (Doughboy) History This monument consists of a 14-foot-tall granite stele on which a bronze “doughboy” soldier is displayed. He holds a rifle, has a flag draped over his shoulders, and is depicted as if in the midst of battle. The derivation of the term “doughboy” to describe an American soldier remains in question. It was first used by the British in the late 18th and early 19th centuries to describe soldiers and sailors who would certainly have been familiar with the fried dough dumplings known as doughboys. In the United States, the nickname came into use during the Mexican-American War (1846–1848), and was widely popularized during World War I (1914–1918) to refer to infantrymen. Popular conjecture suggests that the name was derived from the soldiers’ uniforms. This was either because of the large globular brass shirt buttons, similar in shape to doughboy pastries, or because of the doughy clay that they had to use to clean their white uniform belts. After the war, in which Americans saw combat in 1917-18, numerous communities commissioned doughboy statues to honor the local war heroes. The Chelsea Doughboy is one of nine such statues erected in New York City’s parks. This memorial was placed in the heart of a working-class tenement district, and was dedicated on April 7, 1921. It was a gift to the City by the Chelsea Memorial Committee and cost $10,000. Designed by architect Charles Rollinson Lamb, the monument’s statue is by the noted sculptor Philip Martiny (1858–1927).
