The good thing about this spot is that it’s free. The BEST thing about this spot is that it’s an old abandoned aboveground overhead railroad that has been converted into an oasis of art and wonder amid the busiest city in the world.
It would be a spoiler alert if I informed you of every detail of this park, but what I can tell you is that it is oh so relaxing and every turn has something new to look at.
There are weekly events. For example a sound walk in the evening where your footstep’s created sounds throughout the park, and walking along was like a mystical radio fairy has sprinkled sound bites everywhere.
Billboards around here don’t sell the latest H&M fashion, but rather ideas and inspiration. It’s ideal in the summer when waterfalls flow through foot paths to soak your swollen suckers, but winter won’t scare away this land of wonder. As the volunteers chip away the snow and ice to make way for winter fun.
This is a great example of NYCers getting together to bring a spec of nature to city life which we need oh so much. It’s an escape for locals and tourists to enjoy the enchanted walk through this narrow elevated park – catching great views of the city and some rest too.
