The High Line: Date Night Reinvented


Your art-loving paramour will be over the moon as you take a romantic stroll together along the High Line, Chelsea’s unlikely new high-design park located on an abandoned elevated railway. Hold hands and gaze at a swath of greenery cutting through ultra-modern high-rises and ancient industrial hulks, dotted with sculptures from some of the city’s most cutting-edge artists. Your hearts will race as you catch sunset over the Hudson and watch as the lights of Manhattan flicker to life. When your legs grow tired, take a load off at the High Line’s glitziest neighbor, The Standard, a boutique hotel that straddles the park. Share a pizza and a couple of pints at the beer garden, or amp up the romance with cocktails at one of the city’s hottest clubs, Top of The Standard, which locals still call the Boom Boom Room. Lucky for you, if you need a romantic spot for overnight accommodations, you won’t have far to go.
