City Angles, Highline Edition

Yesterday afternoon we went for a walk on the High Line.  On the west side of Manhattan, it’s an old elevated freight train line that was converted into a public park/walk.  (It’s also the setting for the opening scene of Astonishing, “poetic” license to make it work.)  It really is the best of the city, squished in between residential buildings, old factories, and office buildings, incorporating the beams and concrete that were already there with plantings, art, and lookout points.  In quite a few sections, I mean squished quite literally, there are some buildings where you could reach over and touch the windows.  I’ll be honest, I couldn’t walk too far, but even a few blocks’ worth yielded many photos.
