Walking The High Line in New York

Views from The High Line in New York
On Mother's Day, 6th March (UK date), I walked the High Line in New York with my daughter. Snow still covered any greenery, the wind was icy and the sky was girder grey. The High Line is an elevated section of the former New York City railroad. It started near our hotel, The Jane, a former sailors on shore stop off joint, and runs for around a mile and a half. You can join on any cross street via staircase or lift. 
Here are a selection of my photos from that walk, celebrating the subtle urban beauty, the sculptures and art, the graffiti, the views, the wintery monochrome grandeur of the city. The red, mustard and mauve berries are still on the branches but looking more closely, paying attention to the plants,  there were also signs of new life. By Wednesday, spring had started, with temperatures in the 70s. New York buzzed with vernal horniness. But on Sunday you would never have guessed that this was just around the corner.

  1. I stayed at the High Line Hotel in November and absolutely loved walking the High Line at any time of the day... and one evening, witnessed the most amazing sunset in a city ever. I was having a coffee in The Underline cafe' and saw this orange haze outside, so run out and there it was. So stunning. The Jane looked cool, we walked in to take a peek.

  2. Definitely my favourite NY activity, especially as Spring starts peeping through. Have you walked The Line in London?

    1. Is that the one from Crouch end? I used to walk along the tracks as a kid. Must do it again.

I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
