Chinatown

... after crossing Brooklyn Bridge, I picked up my mother-in-law from work and we started walking toward Chinatown. I've always wanted to take a stroll there. The sun started to come out and raised the temperature to approx. 28 degrees Celsius. We decided we would take the subway to our next stop - The Highline Park. 

Along the way we got some Turkish food, and turns out that there is one food that New Yorkers have not managed to make better than it is in the original country. Yikes. The doner meat was tasteless and the sauce didn't have an ounce of garlic. What's up with that? 

Anywho, we walked down 14th St to the west side of Manhattan called the Meatpacking District. The Highline Park starts at Gansevoort St. (by 13th St.) If you walk down 14th you can't miss it. There are several inlets along the way too or you can start at the northern end, which isn't far from Madison Square Garden. 

The weather was perfect for visiting the High Line. We had such a great time exploring and enjoying the views of the city.  

Unfortunately that's it for this visit. I'm leaving on a train tomorrow. Headed to Maryland.
