Sunset on NYC High Line Walk
Every time I go to New York City, I try to do one new thing. The NYC High Line is a 1.5 mile stretch of former rail line through Chelsea on the far west side of New York City- from 14th St. to 34th St.
Leave it to those crafty New Yorkers to figure out a way to add more green space to a crowded city. The High Line was not too packed on this very warm, December Sunday night. There are posted hours and workers helping out lost tourists, making sure things were going smoothly along the walk.
Murals, modern art, and benches line the walkway making it a great place to go for a stroll. There was the occasional jogger darting in and out of the walking packs, almost causing pedestrian accidents.
I am a runner but let’s all agree to leave this to the walkers, gawkers, lovers, eaters, sitters, and families.
The architecture in the Chelsea and Meatpacking District that the high line runs through was stop and look at amazing!
We saw a group of 30 preparing to help a couple get engaged with tshirts that spelled “Will You Marry Me”. It was very cute! (She said yes).
Many families, solo New Yorkers, tourists, models, roller derby girls, and brides were on the High Line taking photos down the side streets. BC was my model:
Taking a sun lounger break:
I sat in a lounger for all of 5 seconds and then I saw a little mouse underneath me. I squealed and jumped a foot. That was the end of Andrea’s sun lounger time.
Make sure you put NYC High Line on our list of things to do when you get the big city, especially on a warm night or morning around sunrise or sunset. Make plans to visit Chelsea market before or after your walk or make dinner reservations in the Meatpacking District- I would have loved it explore that neighborhood more!
I’ll be posting throughout the week of Christmas with some more fun New York City and Dallas adventures. Make sure to check back!
Reader Question: Have you walked the High Line yet? Have you explored the Meatpacking District at all?
