The High Line and Whitney Museum of American ArtThe High Line, a defunct elevated train track that was reimagined as a linear pedestrian park, immediately became one of the city’s best-loved public spaces for both locals and visitors when it opened in 2009. Start at the southernmost entrance, on Gansevoort Street (after first spending an hour or two at the adjacent Whitney Museum of American Art). You can meander north for 20 blocks among plantings, water features, snack vendors and rolling chaises with views over the Hudson River before turning back.
