Day 355

Day 4 in NY: Keegan and I check out the High Line down in the Chelsea district. HIGHLY recommend checking it out if you are ever in the city. This elevated, dilapidated railway from the 30's was slated to be torn down in the 80's. Members of the community joined together to lobby for the preservation of the line and reuse as public garden space and in 2006, construction began of a 1.5 mile long park/pathway along the elevated railway through gardens, outdoor theaters, art exhibition space, back alleyways of buildings, and unique composed views of the city. LOVED it.
