The High Line, New York, NY

14 of 24

Originally
built in the 1930s as an elevated freight train bridge, the High Line reopened
in 2009 as a pedestrian-only “floating park” above Manhattan, stretching from
Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 30th Street.
Eventually the park will extend all the way to 34th Street.

Cool
Summer:
The High
Line is a prime street-food spot. Artisanal ice-pop makers People’s Pops and La
Newyorkina, for instance, dish out their icy treats in flavors such as
mango-chili and hibiscus during Summer 2011.
