Visit - The High Line Part 3 - Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street The High Line is a much-lauded civic project - a public park built on a rail line elevated above the West Side of Manhattan from the Meatpacking District all the way up to West 34th Street. The third, and most northern section that has been re-developed opened in September 2014 and curves around the Rail Yards of Pennsylvania Station. With artists' installations, film screenings and glass viewing platforms above the streets, the High Line is a perfect walk for a sunny afternoon.
Garbstore’s Autumn/Winter 23 collection is inspired by the Mountain Grill café that once inhabited Portobello Road, the birthplace of British beatnik culture and a hotbed for underground magazines and up-and-coming artists.
