new york city : the high line


If you're ever lucky enough to find yourself in New York, a walk along the High Line (preferably during the first or last light of the day) is an absolute must.

The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. We found ourselves here on a particularly gorgeous November afternoon, just as the sun was lowering onto the city skyline and casting a golden glow across the park; really bringing the autumnal colours to life.

I highly recommend stopping for a meal at Chelsea Market while you're in the area (the fish tacos at Friedman's were amazing). If the weather is pleasant, avoid sitting amongst the crowds and order your food to go; no doubt it will taste all the more delicious as you sit in the park overlooking the bustling city.

Oh... and don't forget to top it off by losing yourself in Anthropologie (inside the market building) for a good couple of hours afterwards. (Apparently, I have a "very patient family" - just ask the sales woman. Ouch!)

  1. Oh your photos and your words make me so excited to go home! Just over a month now...and then I too will be wandering around Manhattan! I hope that Toddler C will be patient as I wander through Anthropologie!

    It is lovely to see these photos of a younger Lalie...she has grown up so much since your trip.

  9. We leave for the US in 59 days so will definitely add this to my NYC list. I was interested to read in a previous post that you used airbnb. We have booked a few places through airbnb for this holiday but not NYC as I had read some negative reports on using it for NYC. How did you find the experience? Most people (Australian's) I have spoken to regarding travel had never heard of it - I heard it mentioned at a Chamber of Commerce work dinner. Love Eulalie's dress - and her name!
