The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s for freight trains, but after being out of use for years (decades?) was recently converted into a public park. Its beautiful and relaxing and must have a pretty good team of landscape architects. I think its still a work in progress so it would be interesting to go back and see the whole thing when its done.
I heard that, since the park goes right next to this hotel, they’ve had a little trouble with exhibitionist hotel guests showing their goods off to park-goers. Unfortunately I was not so lucky as to witness any such things. Bummer!
I really love the idea of reclaiming unused city spaces for art or public enjoyment like this. Its all about the three R’s guys.
I’d say it was right about here that I walked past Peter Sarsgaard. As we made eye contact I could tell he had this nervous look like “Oh F I’ve been recognized,” ha! All I could think about was how bizarre it must be to be a celebrity.
There’s also this little theater area with a view of the street – of course!
Zoom in Yuko, darling, that sign’s for you! Miss you! Oh but don’t everyone let our sign distract you from the best part of this picture – may I please direct your attention to the sleeping beauty on the left?
: ) Oh and ps, I was happy to read all your comments on my last post – I promise to put more effort into this thing!
