high line

With the truly spectacular weather this past weekend in NYC,  which  could quickly turn into one massive sucker punch right in face, as it’s GOING to end, Mr Weiss and I finally took a stroll along the much talked about, much anticipated High Line.  It was fabulous!  A creative and architectural achievement and if any of you New York readers have not stepped foot on yet, I say GO, go whilst you can.

Images on and around the High Line.

    Nicely done! Great variety too, just like the city itself.

    Really nice pictures. I really like the silver railing against the vertical wall lines. Is the entire project done now? Or are they still working on it some? Great post!

      they are still working on extending the line, at the moment it goes from around 12th st (Gansvoort) to about 21st st. But it seems alot longer.

    If I were to ever go to NY, I would definitley like to walk the length of that unusual park. What a beautiful concept in a place of glass and concrete.

    Beautiful photos. Glad you got to see it. You have to go back in the spring. It’s completely different. More manicured. Not as wild and overgrown. Not sure which season I prefer up there. They’ll open another l0 or so blocks next year and then the final stretch is set for 2011. Can’t wait.

    Of course it had to be tagged. Haha! Good tag all the same. Thanks for the pics. If I’m ever in New York, I’m definitely going to make it a priority to check this out.

    I watched a documentary about this some time ago but of course forgot about it soon.
    If I ever go to NYcity and it still exists, I wanna go there.

    I can see urban gardens sprouting up throughout cities similar to this park.
