Best for Romance - Expert review of The High Line Park

One of the most exciting arrivals in New York in years.

The High Line Park in the Meatpacking District is one of my favorite new destinations in New York, and judging from the crowds I am not the only one who thinks it is an amazing example of urban reinvention. Formerly an above-ground freight train track that transported, among other things, meat from the slaughterhouses nearby, the mile-and-a-half-long line has now been transformed into an elevated park that runs from the Meatpacking District through Chelsea and all the way up to the Javits Center. I love the way it’s been planted with beautiful flowers and think it’s also fun that you can peek into buildings as you make your way uptown. All in all, it’s a lovely new place to take a stroll and take in an example of true creative restoration.
