High Line - West Side NYC

Last year, 11,000,000 people hiked the High Line Park in NYC. Open since 2009, it has fastly become another must see walk in the city.

Starting at Gansevoort St in the Meat Packing district and running to 30th Street with 8 access points, several with elevators, the sites are great on the old rail line as well as the views of the river, streets and buildings.

Traveling over three major neighborhoods, it's surely worth while to visit the streets as well. The Meat Packing District with its cobblestone streets is full of restaurants, shops and even an Apple store. Chelsea has over 100 truly diverse artist stores and galleries. To support the arts are a large residential area, dozens of restaurants, cafes and shops. Hells Kitchen and Railroad Yards are the final section.

Top of The Rock - Rockefeller Center NYC

Skip the long lines at the Empire State Building and go to the Top of The Rock instead.

Stunning 360 views are the draw. Now called the GE building, it is surrounded by many new sky scrapers and hundreds of old architectural gems as well.

I could spend hours there with my camera shooting wide shots, and extreme close ups. I try to identify buildings that I noticed while on the street.

Countless subjects to look at make this a must see destination when visiting on a pleasent day.

Main Street - Manayunk

Manayunk is a fun Philadelphia neighborhood for food lovers.

Literally any flavor for you taste buds and price preference. There are some old family owned classic spots too.

Summer is full of festivals, and nearly every restaurant has street side dining.
