Located in the meatpacking district, this historic and once abandoned rail line is now an elevated public park. You only find elevated parks in New York, right? Wrong!

Just two blocks from Union Square, Haven’s Kitchen is a converted carriage house turned renowned recreational cooking school, food shop, and event space. The focus here is to create amazing food while being aware of a sustainable food system.
