Philadelphia’s Own ‘High Line’
So you’ve probably seen that elevated railway that runs through Chinatown before. Maybe you even heard it’s relatively easy to get up there to see the city… Well, I had a few plans this past summer to sneak up there with some friends to take some photos for this blog, but shit happened, I’m sure, and I never got around to it. Until this weekend, that is!!
It’s not to hard to get up there. There’s a small cut in a fence around 10th and Buttonwood (behind Jose’s) and a bit of a hill to climb, but one you’re up there the views are incredible.
The only tip I might have is to go on a warmer day, or just wait till spring. My friend Alex and I spent about an hour up there and by the end of it my feet, thighs, hands, and face were pretty fucking numb… Not so nice. But again, the views and, I hope, these photos make up for it.
