Hudson Yards

High Line x 

      Hudson Yards has become the cultural center of Manhattan’s New West Side. A template for the future of cities, this new neighborhood has not only changed the way New York looks to the world, but the way the world sees New York.

The High Line

     The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City. The High Line's design is a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf.

The High Line's success has inspired cities throughout the United States to redevelop obsolete infrastructure as public space. The park became a tourist attraction and spurred real estate development in adjacent neighborhoods, increasing real-estate values and prices along the route. By September 2014, the park had nearly five million visitors annually, and by 2019, it had eight million visitors per year.

Chelsea

     West Chelsea dates from the early 1900s. Back then, its cobblestone streets were lined with warehouses and industrial plants. Many of the original buildings remain, but today it’s a neighborhood transformed into a hip commercial and artistic hub of the High Line, high-end designer shops, upscale restaurants and nightclubs, boutique hotels, and world-class art galleries. Famous residents include actors Nicole Kidman, Kevin Bacon, and Edward Norton, and fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and her husband, media magnate Barry Diller. The area is also known for its social diversity and is home to one of New York City’s largest LGBTQ communities.

Its the contemporary art capital of New York and the world. More than 200 galleries, including the city’s most prestigious and eclectic art spaces, stand within a few blocks of each other. The galleries run north to south and east to west on 10th and 11th Avenues between 19th and 27th Streets. The latest in contemporary fine art and sculpture can found a few blocks from galleries representing some of the world’s leading artists. The Gagosian Gallery’s New York branch has featured works by Richard Serra, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, and Ellen Gallagher. Other influential art spaces include David Zwirner Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Pace Gallery, Mary Boone Gallery, and the photography of Cindy Sherman at Metro Pictures.

The Whitney Museum

The Whitney Museum of American Art, designed by Renzo Piano, relocated from the upper East Side to the Meatpacking District in 2015, marks the southern entrance of the High Line. Farther east is the Hotel Chelsea, famous for its former residents: writers, musicians, actors, and the merely famous. Over the years, Mark Twain, Arthur Miller, Dylan Thomas, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jack Kerouac, Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, were among the cultural icons who lived at this landmark New York City residence hotel, which is expected to reopen later this year after extensive renovations.
