The High Line: Summer Destination

I recommend the red plum from People's Pops

Railroad Tracks

On Thursday, I braved the heat and made my way to the High Line, its a 1 mile long of a former railway redesigned and restored into a eco-friendly park. It runs from 30th street through the Chelsea neighborhood all down to Gansevoort street in the meatpacking district. It also features paintings and sculptures from artists elevated the recreational park to an extraordianary level. There's a vast amount of beautiful flowers that add a pop of color and warmth to the space besides the ray of light beaming down from the sun. Stretches of track and ties recall the High Line's former use. Portions of track are re-used for rolling lounged positioned for river views, particularly the Hudson River. 

In addition, High Line also offer food vendors to keep those grumbling stomachs happy. Grab a coffee to satisfy your caffeine fix, a cold beverage or a delicious meal the choice is yours. This year's food vendors featured at the High Line include the Taco Track, L'Arte del Gelato, People's Pop, Blue Bottle Coffee, Melt Bakery, Sigmund's Pretzels, Brooklyn Soda Works, Delaney Barbacue's SmokeLine, La Newyorkina and the Terroir. I tried the red plum shaved iced from People's Pop when I visited and it was a great way to deal with the heat. Next time I will try the Taco Truck and Blue Bottle Coffee to enjoy while overlooking the Hudson River. The High Line is New York's best kept secret and a great way to end those warm summer nights.
