highline.

16 Sep 2010

The renovated, reopened Highline is new enough that I still sometimes feel like a tourist walking on it; it’s probably one of the few places in the city where I willingly and happily find myself amongst actual out-of-towners, all of us marveling at views of the city that hadn’t been available to us until just last year.   Although I’m always quite moved whenever I walk along the underpass and the sun hits that bit of stained glass just so, it’s the random bits of flora that get me the most, especially later in the day as the light begins to fade.  And of course, from this height, and before night and the crowds have completed descended on the west side, the Meatpacking District almost — almost — looks manageable.
