When I was in New York with my dear friend Stacy, we chose to tour one of the top tourist attractions of the country which was the High Line. I had no idea what it was all about until we experienced it ourselves. The High Line is a one mile linear park built on old historic railroad tracks. It lies on Manhatten’s west side and was opened to the public in 2011. It is really one of the most unique experiences you can imagine walking along what was where a train ran for many years. The park was built there by a community based nonprofit supported organization’s effort at preserving history ( http://www.thehighline.org/ ).
