The High Line is the number one tourist attraction in NYC, or at least it's the top pick for Urban Sketchers who visit our city. Given how many architects and landscape architects we have this is no surprise. The High Line has also played a decisive part of New York reclaiming its waterfront.

As usual this is a mid-week, best guess about the weekend weather. The temperature looks reasonable and the forecast says morning rain. The forecast will either improve or deteriorate. Hold Saturday for sketching and we'll confirm, ... or come up with a Plan B on Friday depending on how the weather goes.
