Yesterday I visited the High Line for my second time, and I know it won’t be my last. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It has become one of my favorite places in NY because it’s a beautiful walk and an amazing way to experience nature blending into a strong urban backdrop. My friend Lisa and I grabbed a late, boozy lunch on the patio at The Standard Grill, which is located in the meatpacking district, right under the line, and offers a fantastic American cuisine menu of fresh salads, sandwiches and seafood. We shared 1/2 dozen oysters, a bottle of Rose and a Portobello & avocado sandwich (yum!) and then headed up for a stroll in the sunshine. It was a beautiful warm spring day and a perfect way to spend an afternoon in the city.
