The food at the High Line is open for summer

I love the High Line.  Fred and I walked the High Line when it was still the train tracks with lots of weeds and we both got so excited about what it could be.  Well now it is.  An elevated public park with art installations and  lots of good food.  As always, I want to be transparent that since we made that walk, I spent a lot of time talking with both Joshua David and Robert Hammond who were the true executors of this dream come true over the years and eventually they reeled me in and I now sit on the board.  A true honor. Just a fyi, the park is funded by private funding so every dollar counts.  

This week the food trucks are open and ready to go.  The trees are full, the flowers are blooming and there is art to see.

Melt Bakery for some delicious ice cream sandwiches.

Peoples Pops

Bark for hot dogs

Northern Spy

Taco Truck

L'Arte de Gelato

Terroir Wine Bar has a sweet spot for dining.  We had lunch there.

Seeing these 3 unique buildings from the elevated view is what makes NYC so awesome.

High Line zoo that an artist put up outside his apartment. 

Charles Kubricht installation.

A seriously long walk from Gansevoort all the way to the end and back again…and never a stop light but the ability to take in the views, smell the trees and just enjoy the great outdoors.  I can hardly wait until the last section opens next year.

      How long is the walk?

      1. Gotham Gal

        Good question. Depends on people traffic and how fast you move. It is roughly 20 city blocks

    I didn’t know it was privately funded — that’s awesome. Walked it for the first time just after the new year, one of the many things that has changed since 2006!

      Most people believe that all the money came from the city or government and continues to. Not true. Yes there was money allocated originally but the majority of it comes from private funding. SO every penny counts!

    Loved your mini-travelogue, Gotham Gal!  And the photos make me wanna run right up there and EAT!  Looking forward to my first High Line excursion.  BTW, got here via @jerrycolonna:disqus

    The High Line by itself is an experience, but I can’t get enoughof the food on the High Line. There are so many delicious choices. My favorites are Northern Spy Co. and Bark Hot Dogs.
