The High Line was a freight rail line, in operation from 1934 to 1980. It carried meat to the meatpacking district, agricultural goods to the factories and warehouses of the industrial West Side, and mail to the Post Office. The High Line Park currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center. In fall 2004, FHL and the City of New York jointly selected a design team for the High Line through a six-month design competition. By June 8th 2011, section 2 (West 20th Street to West 30th Street) opened to the public. The High Line is open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM daily.
