The High Line opened this week!! The Inhabitat team was lucky enough to gather together to see it this week on Monday, and we loved it! It’s green, it’s public space — and visitors feel like they are walking above the city, so what’s not to love? And in case you weren’t already as ecstatic over it as we are, here’s your second chance! We hope you saw our coverage of the High Line here [2], but we want to share the buzz we’ve been seeing around the web.

Huffington Post [3] has some great aerial shots [4] of the project.

Curbed [5] announces the opening, and features a shot taken from The Standard’s webcam [6].

NY Times [7] provides comprehensive coverage [8] of the opening.

Treehugger [9] and thedailygreen [10] put up slideshows here [11] and here [12] for us to enjoy the greenery at home.
