Hi! I'm Claire an avid traveler and Digital Nomad. At 34 I sold all my worldly possessions that wouldn’t fit into 3 boxes or in my backpack and hit the road.
The Highline is a disused railway track that was built above the city in 1934 as part of a transport improvement project. The track itself is 1.5 miles long and runs from St Johns Park up to 34th Street.
The train line stopped being used in the 1980's and although it was almost demolished thanks to local objections this was stopped and instead it was transformed into a public space. The first section of what we now know of as The Highline was opened in 2009.
It is free to visit and it has some pretty stunning views of the city from above.
