I took a day trip to New York City and one place I wanted to see was The High Line. I asked several people I know from New York had they heard of it and they all gave me the same, “What?” when I asked them about it. In fact, I asked two people when I got on the bus to get to the subway and neither of them knew what I was talking about either so this must be more of a tourist attraction that something many New Yorkers from other borroughs visit.
I entered on 10th and 34th street in the Meatpacking district. The stairway above is how you get to the High Line.
Do you see the railroad tracks in the picture above? The track extends throughout the length of the High Line.
There are plenty of places to sit and relax throughout the High Line, some in the shade and some in direct sunlight.
There are plenty of outdoor art pieces along the High Line, all really interesting.
You can stop and get something to eat, drink, or have some dessert. And thankfully there is an area with complete shade where you can eat while sitting at a table.
I wanted a little snack, (surprise, surprise) so I got a couple of tacos from The Taco Truck. The food was fresh and made on the spot.
I like that he had on gloves. Sometimes when people are making food from a cart hygiene can sometimes go out the window. But this cart and all the others I looked at seemed to be very clean.
Does this look good to you? These are chicken tacos and I can’t even tell you how delicious they were. If I hadn’t had dinner plans with my friend I would have gotten some more because they were amazingly flavorful and my mouth was super happy.
This is a seating area where you can sit and look at people on the street below.
This lady was doing Tai Chi in the area where there were several trees and benches. There are so many different pockets of greenery on the High Line, you don’t have to walk far to see flowers, trees, grass, or benches.
This is another view from the High Line.
Have you ever had Mexican style ice pops? I didn’t try them but now I wish I had.
I liked the way you can see the elevated track from this angle
Isn’t it cool how there are trees and grass on the track?
This gentleman was playing lovely music. He asked me to play but I left the drum hitting to him.
This picture below is just another part of the High Line. In this section it’s like you’re walking through a small botanical garden.
I saw this sign as I was walking on the High Line and it perplexed me. Is there a difference between gay clutter and straight clutter?
You know how much I love graffiti
