Built in the 1930s and decommissioned in 1980, the High Line was formerly an elevated freight train line on the West Side of Manhattan. Two sections of the rail line viaduct were transformed into a public park between 2006 and 2011. Like a catwalk, the parc crosses Manhattan’s streets. The landscape architects chose Jakob Rope System’s Webnet for railing filling and greenwall partitions as well as coated Webnet as filling for historic railings, citing timeless design, unobstructed views, safety and longevity as key assets.
