Additional Product Information

The High Line runs along the West Side line of New York City connecting 34th Street to St. John’s Park Terminal. It long functioned in the heart of NYC as a freight transport for agricultural goods such as frozen turkeys until the line fell into disuse in the 1980s.

After years of planning and renovation, the first section opened to the public in 2009. The 1.4 mile High Line park offers an elevated venue to hundreds of events, programs and activities aimed at supporting the diverse communities surrounding the High Line.

The Friends of the High Line approached Tokens & Icons with spikes and rail that were removed after the High Line's conversion.
