|Train station Upper Montclair, NJ|
Super convenient was the NJ Transit train from Upper Montclair to Penn Station (33rd Street). We caught the 8:12 AM train and that put us in Penn Station at 8:59. One of the things I noticed on the train, quite a few commuters had bicycle helmet attached to their backpack, briefcase, purse,... It was just an observation while on the train.
Perfect weather for a walk in the city. A short walk from Penn Station which sits directly below Madison Square Garden and we were on the High Line. The very first observation on the High Line was the design:
According to Laura, the section we were on is the newest section called the High Line at the Rail Yards. Well a bit ahead that name made sense:

Next we headed south on the High Line. The Fall foliage was impressive.

There was no shortage of artwork on the High Line, large and small. Here are a few of the bigger ones:

This is such a great place to take a walk. Just incredible amounts of different foliage. My sister has walked the High Line in all the seasons - it's a different walk each season. I hope I get chance walk this in all seasons someday.

Look where they keep your car.

Once again, it really did not seem like we were in the city at times
|A walk well worth it|
|Stores, vendors, traffic,...|
A great day in New York City!
Thank you Laura!
