High Line and Circle Line Cruise - Part I
Last Saturday, my family recreated that perfect day. It was wonderful. First we went to The High Line, an elevated park on the West Side.
They used the site of a very old rail line to build such a beautiful place where people can walk, sit, tan and lounge all while gazing at Manhattan rooftops.
We trained it down to the city. When we got to Grand Central, we ate a late lunch at the Oyster Bar (a couple dozen little necks? can't go wrong.) My first picture of this day happens to be in the bathroom of this restaurant--they had the coolest couch in the shape of lips! (That's me in the mirror's reflection)
The view from the cab...
Walking along, there are always benches and places to sit. Here there was even a small water pool. Perfect for taking off your shoes and giving the bottoms of your feet a quick refresher.
The High Line really is one of my favorite places. There are mostly apartment buildings bordering the park--they probably get very little privacy seeing as hundreds and hundreds of people are walking right by their windows every day. Still I think it'd be kind of cool to live right by The High Line. At least they aren't next to a noisy rail line anymore!
Towards the end we finally got to my favorite spot in the park. This is my favorite building to photograph.
