+aRt is mere steps from the city's most imaginative new park, the High Line. Called "the hippest public park this city has concocted" by the New York Times, this $170 million dollar re-imagined, pedestrian-only park revamps the freight train tracks originally constructed in the 1930s to schlep goods down the 22 blocks from 34th Street to Gansevoort. The first section of the High Line, from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street is now open and the second section from 20th to 30th Streets is slated to open in Spring of this year. Take the lush park down to the Meatpacking District for lunch at Pastis or grab the Style section and hunker down in the High Line's Gansevoort Plaza.
