Do not miss the raised train tracks – the High Line – that has become a wonderful promenade path. This is one of our favorite New York attractions. Milk, meat, and other goods were shipped in wartime to and from the Meatpacking District on the rail track. 1980 did the last train go, and now it is a promenade paradise.
It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.
Here’s an interesting video showing how the old rail line was transformed into a wonderful park.
