Normally you’ll find me far away from NYC’s biggest tourist attractions, however, the High Line is one touristy spot that I actually love. In case you’ve never heard of it, the High Line is an elevated park located on the west side of Manhattan. They recently opened a portion that extends even further west towards the water and I was really excited to check it out.

When my sister was in town, we strolled around Chelsea Market for a bit, then took the stairs up to the High Line. It was an overcast day, but the temperature wasn’t too high and we really enjoyed walking along in no particular hurry. There were various plants in bloom, musicians stationed here and there, and plenty of people-watching. We walked the entire length of it, from 14th street to 33rd street, and then back to 14th street. I think the High Line is such a beautiful spot and I wish I could spend more quiet afternoons there.

    I always loved wandering around on the Highline – it’s such a lovely, if sometimes crowded, place.

    • I prefer it when it’s less crowded and on this particular day it was not bad at all! :)

  • Love these photos! I still haven’t made it to Chelsea Market, but hope to next time I’m in NY! Sometimes touristy things are so fun! The High Line sounds great!

    • Thanks Natalie! Yes, I’d definitely add it to your list next time you’re in NYC :)

  • I’m hoping to get up to the High Line before it gets too cold. It’s also one of the few touristy spots in NYC that I don’t mind dealing with the crowds to hang out at.

    • Same here! I too would like to fit in one more visit before it’s freezing!

  • Beautiful pics – makes me want to go exploring!

  • Beautiful photos! I will remember to visit that place one day :)

    • Thank you Maru! If you ever visit NYC, I would mark it on the list of places to see! :)

  • Gorgeous! The last time I was in NYC was ages ago and I don’t think the High Line existed then, but every time I see photos of it, it makes me want to get back to NYC for a visit.

    • Thanks Caiti! I remember when I first heard about it and thought it was a pretty cool concept. I’m glad that it was built!

  • I love the High Line! I went in August, but the new section wasn’t open then, so I really need to go back to see the rest! Gorgeous pictures!
