Just a nice walk above the city, with good views and respite from the bustle below - pretty gardens, places to stretch out and relax, enjoyable.

“NYC's mountain ridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Walking along the old elevated train tracks winding through city blocks looking over at west side cafes, high end streets of shopping, busy commercial zones and open public spaces is as close to an urban mountain ridge as a concrete jungle can produce.
