high line, nyc

My trip to New York City this past weekend, like always, has me inspired by all it has to offer.
Among the great shopping and fabulous restaurants we checked out the High Line.
This awesome public park owned by the city, is built on a historical freight rail line above the streets on the west side of Manhattan.
This 1.45 mile park is full of beautiful plants and gardens, plenty of seating
and currently has an art sculpture exhibit throughout the line.
What a great escape to be 1 flight of stairs away from traffic lights & automobiles
and still enjoy the city views.

Not only is the concept incredible, but the design is quite impressive.
