Strolling over New York
High Line Park is today a kind of open-air art and nature gallery in New York, but the history of this space is old and controversial. In the mid-nineteenth century a street-level railroad distributed food in southern Manhattan, but because it was too dangerous for pedestrians, it began to be patrolled on foot, and in the 1920s the possibility of creating a elevated railway line and in 1933 the first train circulated on the new platform. In the 1980s, trains stopped running and, after projects to close and demolish this railway, other plans to turn it into a park overlapped in the new millennium and today High Line Park is a landmark. Until March 2020 one of the attractions of this venue is the En plain air exhibition. The name refers to a mid-nineteenth-century French practice of outdoor painting and is inspired by on-site painting. The exhibition brings together works by eight international artists that approach the practice of free art from different perspectives and a selection of works around Nature.
