    Built in the 30s, this was an active railway until 1980. "Friends of the High Line" formed in 1999 with the idea of turning it into an elevated park similar to the Promenade Plantée in Paris.

    Walk the whole thing (sunset = best). If its night time, look for the exhibitionists Doing Their Thing in the windows of the Standard Hotel. Sit in sunken mini-theater (you'll know it when you see it)
