Part two of our New York City staycation. We finally made our way to the High Line, which has been on my bucket list for a couple of years.
The High Line is a linear park built on an old railroad spur. It zigzags between and right through some buildings.
It needs to be bigger. There is a constant stream of people going both directions, so a quiet afternoon on a bench is pretty much impossible with the whole world marching past . . .
. .. or a quiet afternoon at home when your window is at eye level to hundreds of tourists. Some resident propped up a cardboard cutout of himself in his skivvies to permanently entertain passing gawkers.
There's a water feature and places to sit and buy snacks.
We enjoyed seeing nature juxtaposed with urban grit.
Have you been to the High Line yet?
