The newly opened part of the High line -- between 20th and 30th Streets
-- was amazingly busy last Saturday afternoon when the weather was sultry.
More of the urban/country/green experience.....
with the cars whizzing beneath us.
Piet Oudolf's grass designs will take a little time to settle in
meanwhile you can sit and ponder the wonders of 25th Street (if you really want to!)
At 30th Street is Rainbow City -- a big hit, I think, with the younger set
who can pummel the balloons and spin them to their hearts' content.
The slightly older may prefer the 'beer garden'.
It was lovely to see pictures of phase 2. We enjoyed visiting the first part of the Highline when we were in the city last year. We loved the views of the avenues from the elevated position, it was a different perspective.ReplyDelete
I also remember it was HOT!!
I love your posts on The High Line.ReplyDelete
Every big city should have, reuse and invest in one of these !
GREAT- think I would hit the beer garden and then go pummel balloons! what a good time!ReplyDelete
Elizabeth, you are so, so funny! You've got me laughing with your photo review of the extension of the High Line.ReplyDelete
If the coming weeks might treat us to less of the sultry, I definitely want to take that longer High Line stroll, to see what's what since we saw the initial span.
Think that NYC has got a hit here.
Rainbow City- That looks so cool!! Would have loved to take photos with those colourful inflated balloons!!ReplyDelete
Rainbow city is awesome, but I'd prefer the beer garden :)ReplyDelete
The rainbow city looks inviting. I'm sure youngsters are enjoying the summer to their best being there!ReplyDelete
Rainbow city looks wonderful, I wouldn't mind pummeling those balloons myself, and then going for a cold beer.ReplyDelete
I saw the new part of the High Line featured on one of the morning television news shows. What an excellent way to make use of an existing structure. It must be a favorite walk for all ages.ReplyDelete
Looks like a very popular place! I love those colorful striped balloons for the children.ReplyDelete
I love the idea of the 'High Line'. I think that it reminds me of times in childhood, hiding up in trees on family picnics and looking down on everyone.ReplyDelete
Now I really have to see the next extension of the High line. what are those inflated things, they look like fun!ReplyDelete
Can we go soon? Cheers lori
What a great idea! I think I'd like to sit and ponder the wonders of 25th Street myself.ReplyDelete
When I read your NY posts I keep thinking that I wished I lived in a city which of course I do...but not one with a high line sadly.ReplyDelete
You shared a nice experience about the New York city...and the pictures are really awesomeReplyDelete
Look at that, I have been really wanting to go now that they opened the new part. And now that I know there's a beer garden right there....hmmmm...looking at my calendar!ReplyDelete
That high line is certainly interesting and it looks like folks are having fun in NYC.ReplyDelete
