About the PromenadeIf you are familiar with Manhattan's walkway, the "High Line", you will find a great resemblance to this charming promenade located in Paris.
The length of the "green corridor", the promenade of Paris, is 4.5 kilometers. Like that of New York, it was also built on the bridge of an abandoned 19th century railroad. The original railway line connected the Bastille to the suburbs. It ceased operating in 1969.
The promenade was designed by two architects: Jacques Wrzelli and Philip Matthew.
