In comparison to New York's High Line we have a Low Line called Baana, which has also been converted from an old railway line, that used to connect the harbour to the Main Railway station.

I guess the designers were going for a sort of High Line (in NYC) thing, but they missed their cue. Sure, Baana is very convenient, especially... More

Baana is the new pedestrian zone made on the old railway in Central Helsinki. Its a good way to walk around and enjoy nice garden surroundings. "Baana", is the finnish slang word for a highway.
