Highline to open in June!?

Ever since I started visiting my friends in the West Village - long before I moved here - I have heard stories about the Highline Project.

An abandoned above-ground railway - built in 1930 and left empty since the 80s, the Highline has gained a reputation among many of being "one of those dreamed-up projects that was never going to happen". The city has long envisioned it as a new kind of green space, floating above the city - stretching up the West side of Manhattan. Well it looks like Section 1 of the "park", located in the Meatpacking district, may finally be opening in Mid-June.
