The High Line

We have been in New York City this weekend with friends :-) its been fun although big cities with wee ones can be a little crazy. Today we visited the high line a length of old disused railway track in the meat packing district. There are various entrances to this marvelous greenway often with elevators, we used the area off 14th street a neat neighborhood with restaurants and the famous Chelsea Market a fun gourmet food market.

Me on the high line I simple adored this area it provides a great place to walk with pretty flowers and green areas.

I had the pleasure of having a few tweet ups on the trip first with Mdvani a lovely fashion designer, foodie and world traveler you may recall he did a guest post here complete a video tutorial on his version of eggplant Parmesan.

I also got to meet Toby Amidor another great person and fellow registered dietitian I meet from twitter.

I have visited NYC a few times and although it's fun with great food with wee ones I crave green less busy areas. We met friends who used to live in North Carolina who now live in Long island today with their three kids and this was a fun spot especially the grassy area for them to crawl and run in.

If your visiting the city please add this place to your itinerary you will not regret it.
