So I spent a few days last week in NYC with my young, hip and fabulous sister! And like all fabulous New Yorkers, she knows all the new spots around town. In an effort to expand my own mental map of NYC, we decided to explore a few fun and fabulous locations. Well exploration turned into a photo spread… So I bring to you ‘The NYC Spread: Part 1″.
These first photos take place at The High Line, an elevated park / walkway built from former railroad tracks. The High Line is hidden jewel completely obscurded in the oasis of busy NYC streets.
The High Line, which offers a new bird’s eye view of the Hudson River, extends from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 20th Street (although 34th Street will eventually be the final stopping point). Designed by famed architects Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, the amazing public space has been reclaimed and refitted but keeps a semblance of the original state of the abandoned area with pathways resembling train tracks, weed-like plants and benches made of wood, concrete and steel.
