The High Line

So after over a year of being too busy or rained out or forgetful I have finally been able to visit the High Line park. I had been following the developments of the West Side Line and wether it would be demolished or converted for quite some time. I am definitely happy with what it has become and encourage anyone in the area to check it out.

Here is the High Line running underneath the Standard Hotel. It was later in the afternoon when I went so the evening lights were coming on. I’ll include a few more pictures after the break.

Some of the High Line is still under development. This was an area leading up to a closed of section which runs from 20th to 30th street. I enjoyed the park so much that I am considering becoming a member to help things along.

There was a viewing area where you could sit and watch the traffic below vanishing into the distance. This kid was really into the view and I would not be surprised if he grew up to some sort of traffic analyst.

  1. Nice! It’s pretty cool isn’t it? My brothers Arch firm worked on that project (Diller Scofidio)
    Thanks for making Sonosaurus Rex !

    • Cool may even be an understatement. I really hope it continues to expand. Its a fantastic and inventive park.
