High Times in New York City

April in New York.

I was reminded that no matter your stature,

the Big Apple will make you feel small (in a good way).

When feeling small, it’s great to step up, and see New York in a whole new light.

The High Line— is a 1.45-mile-long linear park, built on an abandoned railway hub.

In 1999, locals Joshua David and Robert Hammond, started the effort to create an uplifting, public space–to go from rail to ramble.  Super heroes indeed.

Today, five million people a year, walk the Line.

Here are some of the sights along the way.

For apartment dwellers along the Line, their life is an open book.

And for those who aspire to overlook the Line,

a sign of the gilded times.

But for the Public, it’s a treasure.  High Line Park offers a bounty of visual treats.

The High Line is a reminder that New York is always

busy being born.  

And, always a fertile experience.

Next, we’ll get back to the NYC streets,

before we rise again.
