Pedestrian bridges are going to cool new heights, turning the need to get from here to there into an adventure.

The High Line, New York, NY

Originally built in the 1930s as an elevated freight train bridge, the High Line reopened in 2009 as a pedestrian-only “floating park” above Manhattan, stretching from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 30th Street. Eventually the park will extend all the way to 34th Street.

Cool Summer: The High Line is a prime street-food spot. Artisanal ice-pop makers People’s Pops and La Newyorkina, for instance, dish out their icy treats in flavors such as mango-chili and hibiscus during Summer 2011.
