A picture speaks 1000 words – and the High Line really doesn’t really need any words to go along with it. An old elevated railway track that was converted into a public park filled with wildflower, the High Line has breathtaking views in all directions, especially of the Hudson River. You can walk along it or sit on benches that face the water amongst wildflower fields.
Go out for a nice weekend brunch in the meatpacking district (nearby ideas: Pastis, Spice Market, Paradou, Fig & Olive, Bagatelle) and afterwards walk over to 14th and the river for access. Plus when you get too hot, there’s fantastic shopping right underneath you (from Scoop to Diane von Furstenberg to the Chelsea Market, there’s something for everyone!).
