Like 8 million other people every year, we walk with you today to look at art and flowers along the High Line. A mile and a half long, this elevated linear park, greenway, and rail trail converted a New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City into a calming, serene, generous natural hideaway above many streets.
The public art program features a rotating supply of general audience works and you are never quite sure what you will find. More impressive perhaps is the botanical aspect of this experience, which grounds visitors, assuring us somehow that all that crazy stuff we experience on the streets is just one aspect of our beautiful city. Don’t take it all too seriously. Knowing that this park is open and available to all New Yorkers is one of Manhattan’s greatest gifts.
