High Line Park 

Get out of midtown and enjoy one of NYC’s (somewhat) hidden gems: High Line Park. High Line is an urban, linear park built on top of the former elevated New York Central Railroad, called the West Side Line.  It runs through the lower west side of Manhattan, also known as Chelsea.  It starts from Gansevoort Street, and ends at 30th street.  Some of the park’s attractions include its naturalized plantings and unexpected views of the city and the Hudson River.  The tracks from the old railway are still intact, so visitors get a sense of what it used to be like.  There are also activities that occur in High Line Park throughout the seasons.  Be on the look out for those events by checking out: http://www.thehighline.org/   

Hours: 7am-10pm

Chelsea Market

After a walk on the High Line, head over to Chelsea Market for shopping and eating.  Located on 9th avenue, between 15th and 16th street, Chelsea Market features stores like Anthropologie sample sales from different designers changing every few weeks, and flea markets, as well as eateries such as Amy’s Bread and Eleni’s baked goods.  There’s something in there for everyone.  Tip: If the weather permits, go shopping at Chelsea Market, and then get all your food to go for a picnic on High Line Park.  

Transportation: ACE, or L train to 14th and 8ave
