Haunted High Line

There’s something uniquely New York about this part of the city. Built on an abandoned railway track, the space is ingenious in its use of reclaimed industrial detritus, a necessity in footage-starved Manhattan. But what we like best is how the pathway takes you above the city while keeping you rooted in urban life: Where else can your kids walk through a field of wildflowers or go on a bug hunt as cabs zoom along the street below? The park boasts plenty of fun events for the kiddos in July and August such as Arty Hours, an arts and crafts program on Saturdays and Lawn Time on Thursday mornings where you can kick back and enjoy magicians and musical performers. Watch out for the Haunted High Line Halloween where ghosts and ghouls from the historical railway visit the park. This celebration of the spooky holiday involves activities like face painting, pumpkin decorating and a scavenger hunt. The last section of the park, the High Line at the Rail Yards, is scheduled to debut this year.

The High Line is a gorgeous place to take the family to check out public art, pretty plantings and fun free activities (usually free summer programming). The spring/summer concessions are now better than ever (there's even an Ample Hills)! If you're traveling with little ones, take note that there aren't many bathrooms, but you can find the ones they do have at 16th St east of 10th ave and then at Gansevoort St at the Diller von Furstenburg Building.
