The High Line, an elevated park running through the West Side neighborhoods of NY from 11th to 30th street, was originally constructed in the 1930s to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets. Now it’s a public park. They are continuing to reclaim sections; when complete, the High Line will be a mile-and-a-half-long. It was cool and clear for our walk in the park. We weren’t the only ones who thought to do this!
There are places to sit and watch the city below you,
There are water features and grasslands,
Flowers and bird habitat.
One neighborhood along the park is Chelsea. They have a great market!
We watched lobster sushi rolls being made. I liked this cupcake shop better!
The High Line is a great vantage point for views of the city.
You can just make out the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in distance.
There are many new and unusual buildings and here’s the Empire State Building too.
