Another New York favorite!
Chelsea Market, the foodies paradise, it's a cool spot to visit in NYC.
The history of the High Line dates back to the 19th Century, around 1847, when the railroad was constructed at street level. After many accidents, the City finally approved the construction of an elevated railway, so in 1934, trains started going through the High Line, carrying merchandise and manufactured goods to and from the West Side factories and warehouses (like the Nabisco plant, which is now the Chelsea Market).
The Association Friends of the High Line is the non-profit, private partner to the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation. It works to build and maintain the High Line and aims to protect the whole structure,and inspiring new ways of thinking about the city, parks, public space, preservation, and community. They provide virtually all of the High Line’s annual operating budget and are responsible for the maintenance of the park. If you are interested in making a donation, you can visit their website at this link.
