It took me a while to admit I love the High Line. It’s a tourist destination that’s a public park built on a elevated freight line on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues all the way down to Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. I like to consider myself, after living here for 20+ years, as someone who avoids these spots. But there’s something about the High Line…not only is taking a stroll here awesome for people watching and enjoying a slice of Manhattan, but the free public art always on display is incredible!
I recently took a summer stroll with my boyfriend and daughter and we certainly made the best of the art we encountered!
We never exactly know what we’re going to encounter when we visit. Every time we go it’s different. So if you see something super cool, snap a picture, it may be gone your next visit.
