Dom and I recently took a walk on the High Line in New York.  Don’t you just love that name High Line.  It takes you back  to the days when jazz songs were written about different lines in New York, like Take the A Train.

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.

If you get a chance to visit New York City you should really treat yourself to this walk.  It is an amazing example of urban reclamation.  Here is a photo of what it looked like when it was an abandoned rail line
