The High Line, NYC.

The High Line, NYC.

The High Line in Manhattan is one of my favorite parks in the world, and this weekend, I was lucky enough to visit it twice, both times taking people who’ve never been before. This above ground park is built into a historic freight rail line and runs up along the West Side of Manhattan from Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to West 30th Street.

It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon walking along the Hudson River or lounging on the lawn absorbing some vitamin D. Whatever your plans, there’s plenty to do above the city, with several food vendors and much to see, including several pieces of artwork. Plus, it’s always great to get a different perspective on the city, especially if you need a break from the hustle and bustle that much of New York offers.

Hop on and off at several locations along the West Side and spend a few minutes wandering around, or several hours. No matter how long you stay, you won’t regret a trip to this unique park.

    Really want to visit the High Line…my brother just went and also raved about it. I hear plenty of “odd” things have been seen going on inside The Standard lol.

      Haha, yes! The Standard has a mind of its own. Would love to stay there one day – so hopefully, I can post about it eventually. Luckily, I didn’t see any strange happenings this time. 🙂
