The High Line
The High Line is located in the west side of Manhattan. It is a breathtaking public park built on a historic freight rail line above the streets. It offers tourists, families and schools many different activities depending on the season. The High Line is 2.3 kilometers long. It’s an urbanites’ playground featuring wildflowers, greenery and outdoor art, while offering pedestrians some of the best views in the city of New York. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to go and see this beautiful, unique view over the city. Perhaps during my next visit?
Wall Street is an eight-block-long street located in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan. The area has made New York City known as the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world. The world’s two largest stock exchanges have their headquarters on Wall Street.
The power of Wall Street is presented in several movies, such as Wall Street and its sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and The Wolf of Wall Street.
On our trip to New York we didn’t really spend time on Wall Street since we had an extremely full schedule. If I ever return to New York City, I’ll make sure to visit!
