A walk on the West Side
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.
