NEW YORK — The last stretch of New York’s High Line park opens to the public Sunday.

That half-mile (800-meter) section completes one of the nation’s most distinctive urban transformations: an abandoned stretch of elevated rails that’s been turned into a linear oasis of flowers, grasses and trees.

Over the last five years, the walkway has helped drive the hip gentrification of the Chelsea neighborhood on Manhattan’s West Side. Luxury condos, galleries, restaurants and boutiques have all but pushed out the industrial grime around the abandoned freight route.

The High Line park now draws nearly 5 million visitors a year, offering an expansive view of midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River from what was once a freight route serving warehouses, meatpacking and manufacturing plants.
