Around the Corner.

Highlights of the High Line!

Have you been to the High Line yet?  Well, you should go.  Recommended by Karen Seiger of Markets in NYC (in my last post covering Morningside Heights), the High Line is quite the treat.  And it's FREE to check out.  Yup, this elevated Manhattan public park spans nearly 20 blocks from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street (between 10th & 11th Avenues), and it's full of plant life and history.

Did you know that the High Line was built in the 1930s and no trains have run on it since the 1980s?  Read more info here!

Access points can be found at:
Gansevoort Street
14th Street (elevator access)
16th Street (elevator access)
18th Street
20th Street

What's around your corner?  In the comments section, please suggest something neat to do/see in the Manhattan Tri-State Area that's either free or on-the-cheap, and it just may be the next place I visit.

Thanks for coming along!
