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.
