One of the delights of our time here in NYC this week has been walking the High Line, a park created on the old rail line running along the Lower West Side. It is a gem and testimony to what can be done to make urban environments more human.
While the plantings and views, like the photo below by JR, are immediately obvious, what is less so is the fact you don’t have to deal with automobile traffic, so omni-present in most of the rest of the City. What a relief!
I look forward to walking the High Line in other seasons. If I lived nearby, I’d be up on it everyday!
