You'll notice tons of awesome things, like the High Line, if you just remember to look up. The abandoned railroad viaduct turned urban oasis is just under a mile and a half long, offering varying views of the city and art installations, all while blending lush greenery into the concrete and metal along the way. It's a great way to burn off a food binge at the Chelsea Market.
“built on an historic freight rail line”
The High Line (also known as the High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) New York City linear park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. Inspired by the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée (tree-lined walkway), a similar project in Paris completed in 1993, the High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park.
