The High Line, Manhattan, New York City
“why did the high line close in 1980”
(Up until the 1960s, New York City was one of the USA’s major manufacturing centers. Walk along the High Line and you’ll notice some buildings come right up to the elevated platform’s edge.
During the High Line’s heyday, trains would stop in front of these former factory/warehouse buildings so that workers could load and unload merchandise directly onto and off of trains.
In fact, High Line trains used to to actually go through some buildings. Yes, through them! Talk about door-t0-door service.
After the 1960s, the demand for rail services slumped when American factories started closing or moving elsewhere. At the same time, trucking services became faster, cheaper and more convenient, thus compounding the railroad’s problems.)
“What is the closest subway to High Line? How do I get to the High Line?”
(On one end, the High Line starts/ends at 30th Street and 10th Ave. On the other end, the High Line starts/ends at the intersection of Gansevoort Street and Washington Street.
The High Line is currently about 1.45 miles (2.33 km) long. There are entrances at several points along the High Line, but I am assuming you, like most people, would like to walk the entire length.
If that is the case, you goal should be to get to either the intersection of 30th Street and 10th Ave. or Gansevoort Street and Washington Street. Read about How To Get To The High Line here.)

What motivates parking ticket agents to write tickets?
(Mostly their paychecks. They also have unspoken quotas or “performance targets” as they’re called. Heck, some even do it because they enjoy it so much.)
It’s also very big business for the city. According to the New York Times’s “City Room” section (11/28/08), the city collected over $600 million in the fiscal year previous to the article.
