I use to love this old elevated subway line when it was a tangled, brambly mess of unkempt weeds — but the renovated version is a fun spot for kids. It even inspired one author to create this children’s book about an urban garden in transition. Zoe was a bit too small (and certainly busy napping) when I last posted our visit to the High Line (see this link), so I took her to see it again on a Friday while Ezra was in school. There’s an area of water where she and her friend Mia could splash around – and a ‘Lilliput‘ exhibit that got them looking for little people on the tracks. We stayed until early afternoon when bus loads of tourists started to arrive and the sun got too strong to stay out. I think this will be the only time ever that the girls get to play on the train tracks – and I know they loved it.
See some of the untouched High Line here – and enjoy the long weekend!
