Ever since my first trip to New York City I’ve been mesmerized by the new buildings that spring up continually. It’s hard to walk down a street where construction is not going on. No doubt some New Yorkers find this inconvenient or even distressing, but the city continues to evolve and innovate.

One of the best examples of a project done right is the High Line in New York City, where an unused freight train line has been transformed into a public park that runs between the Whitney Museum of Art and Hudson Yards. Along the 1.45 mile raised walking path you’ll find over 500 species of plants in multiple gardens, along with public spaces, artwork and free performances. During Covid, 1000 opera singers, stationed along the pathway performed The Mile-Long Opera. Community events and exhibitions change often. It’s also a perfect place to watch the city skyline change and take shape.

Check the High Line Events page for tours, stargazing, musical events and much more. Meanwhile, choose the perfect place to stay nearby from Culture Trip’s selection of boutique hotels.
