Yesterday we went into Manhattan with friends and walked the High Line Park, a linear park created over the old raised railroad beds on Tenth Avenue. It runs from 30th street to 12th street. All kinds of ornamental grasses and flowers, trees and bushes are planted along it's length. It rises 25 feet above the street, so people can overlook the pedestrians and the traffic. There are 2 grandstand areas along the way, where stadium seating allows walkers to sit and overlook the Avenue through large glass walls. There were various art creations included in the foliage and on the Avenus along the way. After we strolled the park, we walked down to Chinatown for lunch, an additional 2 1/2 miles, this time on the city streets. It was great fun! YouTube has a vides of the park when it opened: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2Yq1zzxAc  Enjoy!
