One of the funniest things about visiting the High Line is that there are so many people taking pictures of it.
Not touristy "look at me in New York City on the High Line" pictures, but the kind I like to take, the ones where you pretend you know anything at all about photography. I have a sneaking suspicion everyone is taking the pictures to put on the internet, when they write on their blog about their trip to New York, a highlight of which was the High Line.
The thing about it, though, is that the High Line was a highlight of my trip to New York. Lisel pointed out that the gardens were natural without trying to deny that they were urban; it really was the perfect combination.
(Also, the homemade chocolate-dipped mint ice cream bar that I bought from the Lily Lolly, who has a cart right on the path, was delicious.)
(Seriously- is there any chance that any highlight of any trip I take wouldn't involve food?)
