The High Line
The High Line is a public park that was built on a re-purposed elevated freight rail line on Manhattan’s far West Side. Visiting has been on my agenda since the spring but I didn’t get around to visiting until a few weeks back. I would describe it as being closer to a botanic garden than it is to being your standard city park. Due to The High Line’s flowers/plants, narrow space, and elevation, its not suitable for running, throwing a Frisbee, etc. However, its a great spot for taking a moderately long walk or unwinding with a something to read. I visited on a Wednesday afternoon and while there were certainly a fair amount of people, it wasn’t crowded. I’ve heard that it can get really packed on the weekends but I’m not sure of how true that is.
