Travel Thursday: The Highline, New York

Have you heard of the Highline?
It is an old rail way line in Chelsea, that has been renovated into a city garden/walkway/greenspace.

We took a stroll along the Southern end of the walkway, entering by the Chelsea Markets. Well, Rob strolled, I waddled. It was a beautiful day. We had some yummy organic ice blocks and chatted and smiled and just in general, had a lovely afternoon.

The thing I love about it, is that there is such a strong antithesis between the older industrial buildings, the lush trees, the warehouses, the flowers, railway sleepers, newer chic apartments, and the occasional peep of the Empire State building. There are such strong contrasts, it is fascinating.

Here are some shots we grabbed on our stroll.


  1. It really is such a neat place! I can't believe I hadn't heard of it until like what? Three years ago!?

    1. "when you think you replied and it got deleted"
