New York's High Line park celebrates 10th anniversary

People enjoy mild temperatures along the The High Line park in New York

The project transformed an abandoned, elevated freight line into a public walk that now attracts millions of visitors a year.

New York City's High Line is celebrating its 10th anniversary, with the tourist attraction marking the occasion by opening its final piece.

The project transformed an abandoned, elevated freight line into a public walk that now attracts an estimated eight million annual visitors.

The High Line park is seen from The Whitney Museum of American Art

A decade on, the High Line is widely accepted to have transformed a neighbourhood known for industrial buildings, car parks and car repair shops.

Now the area includes the Whitney Museum of American Art and Hudson Yards, a $25bn (£19.6bn) development of skyscrapers, shops and a performing arts centre.

When it opened on 9 June 2009, then-mayor Michael Bloomberg promised the 1.5-mile (2.4km) park in Manhattan would be an "extraordinary gift to our city's future".

But there is a debate as to whether it has exacerbated the area's gentrification and become a victim of its own success.

In the beginning, the park was noted for its ability to lift visitors above the streets below and give them a unique view, unimpeded by high-rise buildings.
