On your next weekend into the Big Apple, a new adventure awaits you quite unlike those customary of the busy city.

High Line Park is the name of the huge steel bridge that hangs 30 feet in the air and runs a mile and a half along the Hudson River like a great horizon. Although once a deserted railway, the bridge now lives as a pathway both beautiful and practical. High Line Park runs from the Meatpacking District (at Gansevoort Street) through Chelsea and The Garment District.

The walkway is complete with many art installations and an overwhelming number of indigenous plants and trees. The peace and beauty of the High Line are magnificently amplified by the overlook to the bustling city life below.

Definitely a unique site to check out this summer when in the city, take your sketchbook and your camera for there will be many opportunities to catch a bit of the beauty (especially early morning.)
