NYC's High Line

I never got there this past summer. Too much work to be done, too much gardening to do, too close to Garden Walk and too many National Garden Festival events going on. But my wife & daughter did get to NYC and took these pictures for dear old dad's garden blog. That, and they wanted to make me feel bad about not traveling with them. They also visited the offices of Martha Stewart Living magazine and the Guggenheim. It's not that they're kind, caring and considerate. It's more that they're cruel.


Movable lounges on the old train tracks.

Plants on crack.

That's architect Frank Gehry's 2007 IAC building.

The High Line goes under The Standard hotel.
Dead end. Future addition?

  1. thanks so much for sharing these pictures. The High Line seems like a piece of fantasy made real. I'm sure it seemed like such a pie-in-the-sky idea when it was first presented to the city. Now it's a reality, amazing!
