high line (ancienne voie ferrée)

Garder le terme "high-line" s'il s'agit de New York..

"A New York, la High Line longeait la côte ouest de Manhattan et servait au transport du fret venu de l’Atlantique. Cette voie est l'exemple type du transport et de la logistique au moment où les théories de l’organisation scientifique du travail régulaient sans partage les industries. Le train passait alors à travers divers immeubles qui enjambaient la voix ferrée ,favorisant le déchargement depuis les bateaux amarrés aux quais tout proches. "

"La high line, pour faire court, est une ancienne voie ferrée aérienne désaffectée que la municipalité de New York a décidé de transformer en parc public au début des années 2000."

the Singel park in Leiden is a ‘transformation of infrastructure’ park – in essence the same kind of park as the Promenade Plantée in Paris, or its now internationally famous successor, High Line in New York.

In the centre of this view are Union Station and its trainshed. To the south are the lead tracks to the Canadian Pacific Railway coach yards, filled with wine-red CPR heavyweight passenger cars. South of that is the Canadian National High Line, built so that freight trains could bypass Union Station and the CPR John Street Roundhouse. The York Street railway bridges carrying the High Line and the coach yard were demolished in 1995 and the underpass was reduced to about half its previous length.

The awesome High Line area is where the track hangs on cliffs 400 feet above the river. PHOTO : Highline on Silverton Branch Railway
