I have heard great things about the High Line park in Chelsea. I checked it out this afternoon; it was homework for Draw!New York in August.

You can enter the park on W 14th Street at 10th Ave. It is a former elevated railway. Right now it only goes about 10 blocks, but they are extending it further. It is a fabulous example of urban park planning and landscape design.
 Here are the original railway ties. I love the tension between the green natural elements of the park and the geometry and bustle of the city.
