One week ago today I was on a train coming home from NYC. It was wonderful to walk around the neighborhoods of Manhattan.
I had a plan for my first day's walkabout. It was a good plan. It was my plan. And ironically enough, a plan that I could not fully execute. But, that's the beauty of seeing new places...sometimes you plan to see one thing and see something completely unexpected.
Here was my plan:
First: Go to the Ivy Brown Art Gallery and see the Tracey Sides exhibit.
High Line Park. As I was walking I saw stairs and people seemed to be automatically going up as though it was their destination. I actually thought it was a transportation location and walked on past. But, as I came back up the street I thought: "I just want to see".
And I was given the coolest park I've seen! It's a park built on a disabled freight rail. The rail is above the streets. If you go to NYC and are in the area, you should totally go enjoy this park.
Another fun surprise was the Ice Skating rink just below the High Line Park.
But, being the sleuth that I am, I found the address and made my wat there. One person (moi) on foot did not intrude on the quiet.
Come back later this week for Day 2 of NYC. It's the glitzy and glittery side of NYC.
