START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – WALKING ON THE HIGHLINE .

The  three  of  you  are  on the first  day  of   your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .

You  all  can’t  believe  how  tall  the  buildings  are  here  in  this  city .

All  of  the  buildings  seem  to  go  up  and  up  forever .

The  city  where  the  three  of  you  are  from ,  Cleveland ,  doesn’t  even  have  buildings  that  tall .

You  all  had  lunch  by  the  Empire  State  Building  and  the  three  of  you  oohed  and  aahed  at  the  sight  of  that  building.

Now  the three  of  you  are  going  over  to  the  what  all  the  travel  guides  say  that  you  should  visit  when  you  come  to  New York   City .

No ,  it’s  not  the  Statue  of  Liberty ,  Rockefeller  Center ,  Times  Square  or the  National  September  11th  Memorial .

It’s  the  Highline ,  which  goes  from  34th  Street  and  11th  Avenue  all  the  way  down  to  Gansevoort  Street  in the   Meatpacking  District .

The  Highline  at onetime  was  an elevated  train  track.

You  can  even  walk  on part  of  the  tracks  without  worrying  about   a train coming .

The  three  of  you  walk  the  entire  length  of  the  Highline ,  pausing  to admire  some  of  the  statues  and the   many different  kinds  of  flowers  in the   park.

When  you  all  reach  the  end  of  the  Highline ,  you  all  see  the  Whitney  Museum  of  Modern  Art .

The  three  of  you  figure  that  since  this  is  your  first  real  day of  seeing  New  York  City ,  you’ll  have  plenty  of  time  to  visit  the  many  museums on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .

Instead ,  the three  of  you  are  going  to  do  as  the  other  New  Yorkers  do .

Get  something  to  eat  and  walk  while  you’re  eating .

This  is  one  place  where  you  really  don’t  want  to  look  like  a  tourist .

Even  though  the  three  of  you  are .

You  all  may  just  have  been  in  New  York  City  for  a  few  hours ,  but  the  three  of  you  are  really  feeling  bold  now .

Instead  of  getting  off  at  one  of  the  many  exits  on   the  Highline ,   the  three  of  you  are  going  to  walk  back  from  Gansevoort  Street  all the   way  down  to  34th  Street  and  take  your  first  subway  train  ride  in the   city .
