03/20/2013 15:21

On Friday, April 5th,  we will be meeting at 10:00AM at the entrance to the Chelsea Market.  The Chelsea Market is located at 75 9th Avenue between 15th and 16th Street.     

                    To 14th Street and 8th Avenue.

We will explore the market for a bit and grab a coffee and some breakfast at one of the eateries inside. Then we will go up to the High Line Park and enjoy our coffee while taking in some amazing sights of the city.

What is the High Line you ask??? The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. The High Line was a freight rail line, in operation from 1934 to 1980. It carried meat to the meatpacking district, agricultural goods to the factories and warehouses of the industrial West Side, and mail to the Post Office. The High Line is a monument to the industrial history of New York's West Side. It offers an opportunity to create an innovative new public space, raised above the city streets, with views of the Hudson River and the city skyline. It also offers a hopeful model for industrial reuse for other cities around the world.

Bring your camera and get ready to see one of the best spots in Manhattan.
