At the center of the gallery district, find drink specials and New York City's go-to sports complex.
Dining: Izakaya Ten
During summer the High Line closes at 11pm, just in time for this Japanese gastropub's signature late-night happy hour (shochu specials on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 11pm to 3am). Pair your drink with yakitori, raw octopus, dumplings and other regional favorites.
Sports & Recreation: Chelsea Piers
If you're craving something more than a slow stroll, burn off extra energy at this 28-acre waterfront sports village on the docks of the Hudson. Hone your game of tennis or golf, try out rock climbing or take a chilly spin around the Sky Rink, a year-round indoor ice-skating destination.
