Thanks to the amazing book, “The Stylist’s Guide To NYC” (it’s from Anthropology, so you know it’s good) I arrived in New York with a laundry list of amazing places to visit! It covers everything from flowers, to craft stores, to hardware, fabrics, paper, decor, you name it! and cute little coffee shops and restaurants to visit along the way.
I barely scratched the surface of my list, but I did make sure I went to The High Line.
This amazing rooftop garden is a non-profit that opened in 2009. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side. There is always something new blooming, and you can get there by way of the Chelsea Market, so that’s doubly fun.
The full stretch of the garden runs from Gansvoort Street to West 20th Street.
With beautiful views from both sides of the walk way, not to mention adorable wooden lounge chairs and sitting areas, shops, restaurants, bars, and a water feature. I could spend hours getting lost in a book, or just people watching.
Jumper: Tildon // Scarf: Stella & Dot // “Strength” Key Necklace: The Giving Keys // Black and White Flats: Madden Girl c/o Nordstrom // Camera Bag (Purse that I use as my camera bag): Madewell (sold out, but if you call they may still have it in stores.) // Bracelet: David Yurman
And with that, I bid a fond farewell to the big apple. Until next time New York.
