A few days later, Troy and I came back to the same area to check out the new High Line park.
The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. The former New York Central Railroad used to run along the line, and the structure was under the threat of demolition until Friends of the High Line fought for preservation and transformation. Now, it’s been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway that hundreds of people enjoy daily.
It runs for a over a mile, has amazing views of the city and wildflowers are growing everywhere.
