A perfect weekend in New York – part 2!

A perfect weekend in New York – part 2!
Another very popular destination is of course the Meatpacking District to which I arrived via the Highline, the deserted train track that has been transformed to a green area during the last few years, and is currently being expanded even further North. It’s a very nice stroll during a warm, sunny day, but this being New York expect it to be crowded :(
Brunch was at the Standard hotel’s grill, but although the place is nice the food was a complete disappointment, therefore I won’t bother you with any footage. 
For dinner I went to Marea , a two-star restaurant at the south end of Central Park that is considered by many the best place in New York the last couple of years. Personally I found it nice, but definitely not something as exciting as they make it sound. Comfort Italian food in nice surroundings among affluent and well-dressed clients. Not enough for a real foodie, like me, haha!
