A Walk Along the High Line

from Wikipedia: The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway, and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur… The abandoned spur has been redesigned as a “living system” drawing from multiple disciplines which include landscape architecture, urban design, and ecology. Since opening in June 2009, the High Line has become an icon of contemporary landscape architecture.


They’ve left remnants of the old train tracks along the way. It was fine to walk in the shade but mostly the day was HOT.
I read they chose plantings to match what had grown naturally along the tracks.
There was a lot of scaffolding which didn’t look that great but we welcomed for the shade.

Our traditional reflect-o and more of the natural foliage from the railroad tracks.

And more art. There are many art pieces on the High Line and wikipedia is happy to tell you all about it.

To find out about this eye-popping building I googled ‘jetson’s building on the high line’ and sure enough, there it was.


The inscription above says ‘This book belongs to its owner Fathallah Saad. He bought it with his own money at the beginning of March 1892.’
We ended at the end, at Hudson Yard, more of that later.
