You are now able to take a virtual tour of one of my favorite architectural projects of this decade, The High Line in New York City, via Google Maps Street View.

Also, did you realize that you can view Google Maps in 3D? Just put on your anaglyph glasses, right click, hit ‘3D mode on’, and zone out. Feel like blowing your grandparents’ mind? Give ’em a pair of 3D glasses and introduce them to Google Maps Street View.

Check out the few other parks on Street View here.

You can now tour High Line, which sits 30 feet in the air, over the bustling streets of New York City. The park sits on an elevated freight train spur that spans 1.5 miles and cuts through the western side of Manhattan. Because of Robert Hammond and Joshua David’s efforts, visitors can experience an innovative park that would have otherwise been a demolished urban structure.
