Favorite stroll: Highline

The Highline is a public park located in the Meatpacking District. It was designed in the early 2000's by landscape architects James Corner Field Operations in colaboration with arcitects Diller Scofidio + Renfro. It was created out of the early 20th century railways that delivered meat and other goods to the manufacturers that were once located here. Today it is a beautifully realized park (with more to come!) which is my favorite place to take a stroll, especially at sunset! As you walk you are surrounded by iconic New York architecture and sights and people actually walk slowly to take it all in. There are great places to eat, drink, and shop around here too! So great for a date or to kick off a night with the girls!

My husband (from now on he will be called G-man) and I love the Highline so much we had our engagement pictures taken here.

Happy Monday!
