There are a lot of great restaurants and clubs in the Meatpacking District, but there are also many great photo opps and artistic sites there too. I used to think that the only time I would ever end up there would be to go to a trendy club or restaurant, but I would never get a chance to do that anyway, so when the new High Line park opened up above the Meatpacking District, running from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, I had the opportunity to make it over there for a little sight-seeing.

The High Line Park


  1. Great first two photos of the meatpacking district but I was expecting more interesting photos of the High Line itself. I understand if you were too busy enjoying the views and people watching to snap away, though:)

  2. You got it! I'm actually not too crazy about the High Line for some reason. The viewing deck (with the glass window views of the street below) is neat though. I think the best photos can be taken there at night because it is beautifully lit.

  3. not a big High Line fan? I love it there! Never been during the daytime, only in the evening/ night. You're right, the light is spectacular at night. peace...
