5 city parks to revel in in New York

1) The High Line

A disused rail line from the 1930s has been transformed into a 1,5-mile-long landscaped wonderland, perched 30 ft above the street. An exciting new breed of modern building has taken over the area too – the HL 23, the crooked building on 23rd and the IAC Building, the frosted, amorphic giant between 18th and 19th Streets. Start your walk at the Whitney Museum.
