The High Line
The High Line is arguably the best example of historical preservation in this area. What was at one point a section of the New York Central Railroad, known as the ‘West Side Line’ is now still a method of sight-seeing and transportation for thousands of tourists and residents thanks to the nonprofit group, Friends of the High Line. The railroad-turned-park, which stretches from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street, is an incredible experience allowing visitors aerial views of the city, lawns and benches for relaxation, an escape into beautiful greenery, and some exercise. Perfect during the day and night!
