A slide show of photographs of the second part of New York's High Line, an elevated garden built on an abandoned railroad track, with gardens designed by Piet Oudolf and landscape architecture by James Corner. The second part of the High Line opened June 8, 2011, bringing the completed garden to a mile long, with a third part to open in the future.

At West 29th Street, the High Line begins a long, gentle curve toward the Hudson River, signifying a transition to the West Side Rail Yards. The High Line’s pathway echoes the curve, and a long bank of wooden benches sweep westward along the edge of the pathway. Planting beds behinds and in front of the benches line the curve with greenery.
