New York’s elevated park the High Line comes alive in bricks


If you have ever been to the Lower West Side of Manhattan, you have probably seen the High Line yourself — a 1.5-mile stretch of elevated park and greenway built on a former spur of the New York Central Railroad. In this detailed model by BKNY Bricks this scenic park comes to life in an interesting split scene that shows the stark contrast between the dilapidated track as it was prior to its transformation to a colorful and restful place.

In addition to some quite lovely trees and vegetation, there are some great surrounding buildings as well. I particularly like the lone tree in the lower right area, which has a blocky trunk. I really like the way the builder used bricks both in the buildings, as actual bricks with clearly visible seams, but as paving stones in the street as well.
