Winter is probably not the ideal time to visit the High Line, I'll admit. But I had heard so much about this excellent new "park" that I just had to brave the cold and go see it for myself. In the half mile I walked, there were only a few other souls as crazy as me, but it was still a beautiful thing, and I'll definitely be coming back on my next warm-weather trip! The High Line is a park that runs along a portion of the West Side of Manhattan, around Chelsea and the Meatpacking district, that occupies an abandoned elevated railway line. It's a beautiful thing, wonderful design and construction, offering unique views and perspectives on the world's most interesting city. The area around the High Line is responding and you'll see excellent architecture, great restaurants and brilliant new hotels all nearby. It's not quite Central Park, but it's a really wonderful idea and a new "must-see" for New York. As if there wasn't enough of those already...
