Stretching 22 blocks from New York City’s Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District up to Chelsea, this old railway line 30 feet above the streets has been converted into a eco and family-friendly park aptly named ‘The Highline.  Using reclaimed materials already located in the area, New York now has a new green space.  Rolling lounges, gardens, and benches are well used by mothers, nannies, business people and joggers.  Elevators on each side of the park allow for easy stroller access for its 25,000 daily visitors, and organic hot chocolate can be had in the quaint café area overlooking the Hudson River.  Between 14th and 15th streets lies a stunning Sundeck area with spectacular views, and a bit of need-to-know Mom info: restrooms are located on 16th.  Dutch master horticulturalist Piet Oudolf has designed gardens throughout the park that appear wild and natural, yet have been meticulously planted for enchantment and changing texture and colour throughout each season.  This is, my dear, another excuse to travel to the Big Apple with children.
