Why I like New York 29: The High Line

IMG_1208 (768x1024)A diverse community calls New York home. Interesting, unique opportunities lie around almost every corner.

The High Line is one of them. Located on Manhattan’s West Side, this public park is build on a freight rail  line elevated above the streets. The High Line runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues.

A path follows the old tracks: sometimes on them, sometimes above them, sometimes beside them. Trees, grass, and flowers (watch for some purple flower photos in a few months – I am still catching up)  line the sides. Art shows up every now and then. The vibrant life of the city surrounds the path, enhancing the experience.

Several friends had recommended the High Line. Today, with Tricia, I finally followed their advice. I should have done so sooner. I will do so again.

See you along the Trail.

Why I like New York 28: it’s a small town

IMG_1216 (1024x768)Tricia came to New York for Easter. I took today off – well as close to off as I ever do. We spent the day wandering around the city.

We started at the High Line and then went to see the Macy’s Flower Show. We sat around in Herald Square for a while and did the same in Greeley Square. We took a quick stroll through Korea Town before we returned to the Shire.

As we came out of the train station and crossed 7th Avenue at 14th Street, we met our friend Andy James. Leaving the High Line, we ran into Jeremiah Rosario, another friend. He actually recommended the flower show.

In a city of millions, we meet two friends.

In some ways, the Big Apple is something of a small town.

See you along the Trail.
