New York: Walking the High Line

The High Line
One of the highlights of our trip to New York was walking the High Line, a formerly abandoned, elevated train line in Chelsea that has been turned into an urban park/greenway. We visited on a warm, sunny Friday afternoon in October, and the High Line was packed with locals and tourists.

High Line Experience

The design detail that went into redeveloping the High Line is awesome. There are so many little touches that make it an interesting stretch to walk. If you look down, you’ll see remnants of railroad tracks and rugged shrubs and flowers. If you look up, you’ll see old brick buildings undergoing renovations to keep up with the interest the High Line has spurred in the area.

Benches on the High Line

There is plenty of seating along the route to stop, eat, read a book, or people watch.
