It is always inspiring to walk along New York City's High Line Park. Once disused, elevated rail tracks have been transformed into an overground walkway filled with greenery, places to sit, ice cream to eat, and views to enjoy.
The first time I visited the park, several years ago, it was calming and relaxing and contemplative - now the huge influx of visitors has made it very much less so, but still the access to close encounters with trees and shrubs, along with the art and views both of the city and out to the water, and the opportunities for private moments even amongst the crowds are some of the things that draw people there.
