The Highline has been one of the best things to hit New York City in recent years besides zipcar. It is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. Check it out. There’s nothing else like it. I don’t know how they keep it so beautiful and clean but they do.
