This was part 2 of my favourite day in New York – we walked from Madison Square Park and the Flat Iron District across West to Chelsea and the High Line – an urban park elevated on old railway tracks that used to bring meat from the Meat Packing District (where the High Line ends) up to Midtown Manhattan to be used by New Yorkers – historical and environmentally friendly! Bonus!
The pictures at the beginning of the post are of the Meat Packing District, which is now about as gentrified as you can get – lots of factory apartments and people brunching, but they bring their nice dogs so we’ll let them off.
We also stopped off at the Chelsea Market (half way along the High Line) which has that same feel of a converted warehouse or old fruit and vegetable market, now full of artisan bakers and burrito shacks – No. 1 for High Line refueling!
Anyway, it’s great and if you go to New York you should definitely pay it a visit – although maybe not during the winter as I imagine it would get a littleee nippy out there!
