High Line

A public park built on a 1.45-mile-long elevated rail structure, that used to be in operation as a freight rail line from 1934 till 1980. A similar structure exists in Paris, known as the Promenade Plantée.

MASSIVE slices of pizza are at this local joint. Classic cheese is a best bet, but the fabled Artichoke Slice is to die for. Bring a friend to split it with or you'll be full :)
