The last part of the High Line

highlineEasily seven or eight years ago Fred and I walked the High Line for the first time where we got on at 34th Street right across from the Javits Center.  We were both so blown away around the concept of taking an old railroad elevation and turning it into a park.  Just standing up there and walking was truly inspiring.  It made us love NY even more.

tracksFast forward we begin a relationship with the High Line.  We watched the first piece of the High Line open.  We watch the second piece of the High Line get built and open.  Sometime around then I joined the board.  Then we watched the third piece of the High Line get built and open.  In between there I pushed to relaunch the site which looks fantastic and I highly recommend everyone gets on it.   Great products!

last gaspWe walked the entire High Line from Gansevoort to 34th Street this past weekend and back again.  The last part is completely different than the other two.  Less green, wider and so more airy.  It is just such an incredible landmark.

kidsI love how the kids were all over this area.

Every time I walk the High Line it makes me love NY even more….even if I have to navigate the crowds.  🙂
