If you haven't explored the newly-opened section of the High Line park yet, then let Katie Sokoler's stunning photographs take you there. She stopped by last night and tells us they started "shooing everyone away" at 9:45 p.m., so keep that in mind. The first section runs from Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, to West 20th Street, in Chelsea, between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues; here are details about the access points.
As pretty as the park is, the Friends of the High Line are worried that one-third of the High Line could still be demolished. The group is urging people to attend a Community Board 4 public forum on the Western Rail Yards tonight at 6:30 p.m. A developer wants to construct a mixed-use structure over the 26-acre rail yards site, and proposed zoning changes do not legally require that particular section of the High Line to be preserved. Advocates want the city to take ownership of the High Line at the Rail Yards, as it did with the portion below 30th Street. More info on that here.
