Sunday marked the completion of the New York City High Line, a three-phased project that transformed the once disused elevated rail tracks on Manhattan’s West Side into one of the world’s most respected public parks. With the first section opening in 2009, architectural photographer Iwan Baan has been documenting the entire process. Now, for the first time we present to you a photographic journey through the completed High Line designed by James Corner Field Operations with Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Take a look, after the break. Section Three: High Line at the Rail Yards (2014) Section Two: West 20th Street - West 30th Street (2011) Section One: Gansevoort Street - 20th Street (2009) All images by Iwan Baan, courtesy of Friends of the High Line.
