Frieze Week: Five Highlights Around the High Line

The sunshine beckons to this much-loved landmark, but it’s not just the High Line itself that’s worthy of a visit

99 Gansevoort Street, 10014
Besides the spectacular art, Danny Meyers’ dining spot on the ground level in the museum is always worth a visit; and the views from the museum’s terraces are stunning.

10th Avenue Square
Stairs at 18th Street, 10011
Simply one of the coolest perches in all of New York to watch the world go by.

Chelsea Market, 5 9th Ave, 10011
Take the Chelsea Market passage at 15th Street and weave your way through the crowds to the best hummus and hot pitas in Manhattan.

Dorothy Iannone’s I Lift My Lamp Beside the Golden Door
Adjacent to the High Line at 22nd St., 10011
Mounted by High Line Art, these huge, colorful variations on the Statue of Liberty strike just the right, feminist note for our turbulent times. Check out her tribute to NYC at West 22nd Street.

Rail Yards and Rail Track Walk
The Hudson Yards development and the extension of the 7 Subway line are primed to revolutionize this part of the city. Get a first-hand glimpse of what’s to come where the High Line banks a left at 30th Street At Rail Track Walk, the future merges with the past where old rail switches are visible, vestiges from the High Line’s former life as an above-ground railway.

Frieze New York 2018 runs May 3-6.

Alex Waxman is Editorial Director, Standard Hotels, based in New York City, USA
