Section 3 of the High Line opened to the public on September 21, 2014, and represents an important milestone in development of the project, as the public can now walk all the way from the Southern end at Gansevoort and West 12th Street to its Northern terminus at 34th Street and 12th Avenue. Section 3 begins at 30th Street and 10th Avenue, right where Section 2 left off.
With each phase of the High Line, the design adds new, creative twists to the design that has now become synonymous with the High Line: planking, peel-up benches, custom wooden furniture, public gathering areas, children's exploration areas, and unique city viewpoints that allow visitors to really submerge themselves into the city.
