New York is one of my favourite places on earth. I’ve been reminiscing about it a lot lately, and have the itch to visit again soon. The thing about New York is that you can visit a million times, and experience something new each time. For Dave and I, that new thing was the High Line on our last trip in 2011.

In a city that never sleeps, it’s incredibly relaxing to walk on an elevated park above and between the buildings and hustle and bustle. The High Line is a public park built on an old historic freight rail line on Manhattan’s West Side. I had never spent a lot of time in and around Chelsea and the piers, so it was also a great opportunity to sightsee something new for me. Being so high up, you see neighbourhoods and buildings from an interesting vantage point.  It’s also free, which is welcome in a city that can be pretty darned expensive to visit!

Dave and I highly recommend spending time on the High Line if you are heading to NYC. The High Line is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily… so get there early to have the place almost to yourself! And, be sure and stop off at Chelsea Market as part of your day.
