A Must-See: The Highline.

When my friends and family come to visit me in New York City, I have a small list of must-see sights that I try to get to every time. The Brooklyn Bridge, Central Park, Brooklyn Heights, and Washington Square Park are among them. One of my favorite places to go in the city, with or without visitors, is The Highline. The park, who's first section opened in 2009, stretches up the west side of Manhattan from Gansevoort Street to 30th Street on old elevated railroad tracks. The Highline's history is fascinating, and I am so grateful that the Friends of the Highline were able to perserve the space and create an amazing outdoor oasis thirty feet above the hustle and bustle of 10th Avenue.

My brother, Lucas, and I spent last Saturday walking the length of The Highline. Flowers were in bloom throughout the sections of the park, and we stopped frequently to admire the wildlife and the views of the traffic below. It was the perfect way to spend our afternoon.
