High Above the High Line

New York City’s High Line, the formerly abandoned elevated train tracks on the lower west side of Manhattan, is opening the last remaining section of the wildly popular attraction on June 5, 2019. The Spur section includes the Plinth, which is a dedicated site for changing displays of monumental artworks. Although you can’t access the Spur yet, it’s possible to view the first piece on display from 10th Avenue and 30th Street. The impressive sculpture is titled Brick House. The 16 foot-tall statue was created by Simone Leigh.
