|The origin of The High Line in New York is the Promenade Plantée in Paris. When the new Opera House at the Bastille was constructed in the 80th they had so stop the train on the Vincennes Railroad. They then decided to use the old elevated tracks as a promenade. The Promenade Plantée was inaugurated in 1993 and has since then been a very popular place to walk, play or to jog the 4,5 km from the Bastille to Vincennes. I really love this place and as it is not far from my place I do go there for a walk when I can. To enter you just walk up on the right side of the Opera House from the Bastille and when you get to the rail tracks you get up on the first staircase. Being 10 meters above the city you have a different angle and as you walk you pass many beautiful typical parisian houses. A true gem in this lovely city any time of the year.|
