High Notes Along the High Line

New York, NY, 19 September 2014– A saxophonist plays a jazz medley of John Coltrane and Miles Davis in the early afternoon shadows cast along High Line park. Located above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side, the High Line is an architectural phenomenon constructed atop the ruins of an elevated 1930s freight rail line.

The old rail once transported meat, dairy and other products throughout Manhhattan’s industrial district. Now, it is a coveted strip of greenery for New Yorkers, who use this space as an escape from the city’s concrete jungle.
