Happy Friday everybody! Just a quick post today to share some photos (well…actually a lot of photos) from my favourite day in New York City. You can check out my two previous posts here and here which show a range of photos from all over the city. On this particular day, we woke up and headed into the Meatpacking district to get some breakfast and then went on our merry way to the High Line walk. A lot of people had suggested this as a ‘must do’ thing in the city and we luckily picked a beautiful day to enjoy it. The High Line is situated on the West Side of Manhattan and is a public park built on a historic freight rail line which is elevated above the streets. The best thing about the location is that you get to see the city from a different height and angle, and can admire the beautiful architecture of the buildings without having to crane your neck and look upwards.
The Diner – Meatpacking
The morning begins with breakfast at The Diner which we had spotted a few days earlier whilst wandering around. The venue is not your typical grimey diner, but more of a hip corner cafe with seating outside to drench up the sun.

Out of habit we would order coffees every morning. If we were desperate we would finish off the brown watery goodness for that caffeine hit. The above cup of molten gold was everything that a coffee shouldn’t be, how can they drink this everyday? I would love to live in New York but it would be a prerequisite that a good coffee shop is near by. Preferably one run by an aussie who knew what they were doing.
I had to experience a bagel in the States so this seemed like the perfect breakfast option. Smoked Salmon served with Tomato, Onion, Capers, Cream Cheese and a Bagel.
Ana chooses an Egg White Omelette with Spinach, Mushrooms and Wholemeal Toast, protein filled and full of flavour. We enjoy our breakfast in the sun and then head off down the block.

High Line Walk – Meatpacking to Chelsea
The rest of this post is a conglomeration of photos from the walk. If you’re in New York and the weather permits this is one thing you must do..no questions asked! Just for some contextual information, head to Manhattan’s West Side and start the walk from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District or go from the opposite direction and start from West 34th Street (between 10th & 11th Avenue) in Chelsea.
