NYC is a great city for walking. It’s so flat, and there’s so much to see. After our hot chocolate fortification at Grom, we realized that we weren’t so far from the end of the High Line, a relatively new park that I’d read about and had been looking forward to seeing.
A former elevated train line, gone into disuse in the 1980s, it has found new life as a park with the first section opening up in 2009.
We entered at the south end of the park, right next to the Whitney Museum.
Despite the chilly temps and wind, it was quite sunny, perfect for taking photos.
The tracks are still visible in many places.
There are various sculptures
and street art
as well as great views of architecture – old and new
After returning to our hotel and then going out for dinner, we racked up over 25,000 steps our first day and slept really well that night.
