The High Line: West Side Story with a Happy Ending 

It kind of feels like we've been getting updates from the Friends of the High Line for, oh, as long as we've been alive, but the day (today!) has finally come when the High Line Park—that marvelous reconstitution of dead industrial infrastructure—is open to the public. Sure, it might seem a little too manicured, a little too organized for an open public space, but damn if it isn't one of the coolest parks we've ever seen, as we hope the slideshow below will make evident. But is it roller-blade friendly? IS IT?!

(Thanks to crack L Mag photographer Nadia Chaudhury for taking all the great pics. To read captions, roll over "Notes.")
