I was in New York City yesterday with my friend Susie. We walked around the Meatpacking District and saw the newest park in NYC, the High Line. (We also watched a taping of “Iron Chef America,” (no cameras allowed) went to dinner at Pastis, and then went to Broadway to see the musical, “Fela!” An amazing show and an amazing time in the city.)
The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets. Located on Manhattan’s West Side, section 1 of the High Line is a public park, owned by the City of New York. It runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street between 10th & 11th Avenues.
There were even long wooden benches where two weary friends could rest their tired dogs.
Then into Chelsea Market, in the old Nabisco building.
Then to the Italian market where I found my favorite (very hard to find in Maine) mushroom bouillon!
Today I am on the road headed back to Maine. It has been a great trip.
