The High Line Park on the West Side of Manhattan is open to the public today, one day after city leaders cut the ribbon on the first stretch to be completed.

The park was created along an abandoned rail line, and the first section runs a half mile from Gansevoort to 18th Street.

The High Line's second section, which will run up to 30th Street, is expected to open next year.

Planning will then focus on completing the third section by the West Side rail yards, between 30th and 34th Streets.
