At the High Line
Hanging out the other day with Elizabeth, we went to the High Line.
The High Line is an abandoned, elevated railroad track, now converted into a linear park.
I’d passed by the High Line several times, but never went there.
A view from the High Line.
Lovers enjoying the view. I don’t think they noticed anyone around them.
Despite the winter weather, there were a lot of people hanging out in this unique park.
A little bit of black…
A little bit of red…
Sit, relax, take a load off!
Enjoy the view and various plants and flowers, which one may not see in a regular park.
Ed. Note: Thanks to Sara in the comments section, I’ve learned the flower above is Witch Hazel
The glass building in the background was designed by a well-known architect,
whose name has escaped me at the moment.
When I remember, I’ll come back and include it here.
Thanks, Liisa, for giving me his name — Frank Gehry.
Lots of interesting ads to be seen, like this one, for a parking garage.
This is another art exhibit called
The River that Flows Both Ways by Spencer Finch (2009).
Inspired by the Hudson river, basically the color of each glass pane
reflects the colors of the river, especially when the sunlight hits it.
The Whitney Museum will be moving closer once building construction has been completed.
Another exhibit of a building made to look destroyed. I don’t remember the name of this project.
Seems to be made up of rusted materials and mirrors.
I saw a few birds, including this handsome fella. Does anyone know what type of bird he is?
It was a fun time on the High Line.
