The High Line, NYC.

The High Line has fast become one of New York City's most popular attractions, even though its third section has yet to be completed. The stretch of elevated railway that has been re-purposed as an urban park space along Manhattan's West Side is worth all the accolades it receives. Some may hem and haw that the Meat Packing District will never be the same, but to me the change in urban living and evolution of city neighborhoods is inevitable. So if you can before summer ends, spend the day walking the 20 or so blocks of one of the worlds great urban landscapes. Along the first section there are some food vendors where you can grab a People's Pop to cool off and laze in the shade, but there are plenty of places to picnic along the way as well. For a more historical and inclusive experience, download The Bowery Boys free walking tour of the High Line to your iPod before you go.
