Trip Report at last !!...Part 2

Forgotten how NY has the WOW... just amazing..Sunday we decided to do some walking..Stepped out and walk to Greenwich Village, just left the hotel and tuned into 42nd street when my hubby heard and spotted a large Harley Davidson Rideout escorted by Police Bikes and Fire Engines..I think this made his day, took some really nice photos.Walked around the Village, then decided to walk back towards Chelsea Markets,found ourselves by the river, sat a while and watched all the runners and skaters and New Yorkers enjoying their leisure time with their families, thought we would walk the HighLine, we thought this are was really nice, what a great idea. Chelsea markets made a great stopping place for lunch, lots of choice and a welcome break from the sun..Refreshed again more walking,back to our Hotel, our feet were ready to drop off but we had seen loads of interesting things, really nice areas (and some not so great ones)...Time to have a drink and freshen up before venturing out again to The Rock., hadnt planned to go up, but we were there just before sunset so it sort of just happened, and wow so glad we did..it was amazing...

I'd like to go to the Chelsea markets. What kind of lunch did you have there?

Chelsea markets is an area of specialist food shops and serve your self cafes.. We had soup and sandwiches, but there was the usual pitza slices, Italian sandwiches, wraps etc..and a faboulous fish market that had yummy lobster for sale for lunch, as well as other seafood to eat as you go..There is also a really nice bakery that bakes the bread on site... All nice lunch stuff, but no fancy restuarants or even waiter service,but nice food and a good atmosphere to sit and watch the world go by.Almost forgot..fab. cup cakes yummy.. Enjoy.. We really enjoyed our walk on the high line, and accessable just by chelsea markets. Have a great trip.

Thank you Chrissy for highlighting the High Line,I hadnt heard of this before so looked it up and it looks great. We are going in November for daughters 18th and i have added this to our itinerary. Although I have to be honest and say that the cupcakes was all i needed to hear!!

I have found a map of the high line. Am i right in thinking that if you get tired (i have arthritis so cant walk for hours) you can get off part way through the walk and how long would it take to walk the whole thing as i could meet everyone at the end if they want to do the full walk.

thanks again

Yes you can get off. We did no problems, plus there are plenty of seats for you to have a rest. Enjoy

gociba, keep in mind that the High Line is right off the Hudson River, and in November, it will get quite windy. It often feels colder there than the rest of Manhattan. Dress appropriately!

Glad to hear you liked the sound of the highline, we enjoyed it, mainly because it was such a contrast in a busy city...You can get off at various places along the way, although im not sure exactly where.. Its not completed yet so the walk isnt that long, but maybe since August a little more is finished.. There is disabled access at some places, y0u may need to track those down because there are quite a few steps to enter, but there is an elevator at 14th street. How nice to celebrating your daughters 18th in NY enjoy your time together...
