A walk on the West Side

Gardeners' World - - We Love October - Peter Chap­pell, by email

While read­ing the Au­gust is­sue of GW, I saw your fea­ture City breaks for gar­den lovers. I was par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in your Pic­ture Ed­i­tor Sarah’s rec­om­men­da­tion of the High Line in New York, es­pe­cially as I was soon to visit this city. Af­ter con­sult­ing a map of New York we found the Line, which runs from West 30th Street to Gan­sevoort Street in West Man­hat­tan. It took about 50 min­utes to go around the whole of the Line, and we saw var­i­ous plants in flower and lots of trees. The line is about 10 me­tres above street level, thus pro­vid­ing a wel­come oa­sis from the bus­tle of New York. And the best thing is, it’s free.

We say It’s fan­tas­tic that our fea­ture in­spired you to take a walk on the High Line – thank you very much for shar­ing. Have other readers vis­ited beau­ti­ful city gar­dens? Do write in and tell us.
