What’s Your High Line?

The High Line in Manhattan is a very cool , “elevated”  westside park/walking area with gorgeous gardens and fantastic views of local rooftops.  Being there, I marveled at the ingeniousness of its invention.  It is remarkable how a city can provide small, beautiful spaces that enable respite and inspiration.  And that was just what I needed when all hell was breaking loose and nothing was working right.  High Line gave me a few moments of peace, far from cancelled airplane flights, disappointments, and flooded basements. 

I ask you, what’s your High Line?

For a real treat, check out posted photos of High Line and go to visit next time you’re in New York.  Apparently, there are a variety of classes and events available.   For more information, check their site

Enjoying High Line

The High Line, NYC


Here’s a little more background:

The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets. Section 1 is currently open as a public park, owned by the City of New York and operated under the jurisdiction of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

When all sections are complete, the High Line will be a mile-and-a-half-long elevated park, running through the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen.
