While there may be countless things going wrong in this country - and even this city - there are also the small, infinitely important little gems that have been done exactly right and make this city so incredibly wonderful to live in. The High Line being one of them.
It's farther west for me to have the opportunity to enjoy on a daily, more usual basis. But yesterday I started at the top entrance at 30th street and walked the length of it down to Gansevort. A few too many people for my taste, and more tourists than NYer's it felt, but truly gorgeous summer day, tons of places for a sit & a view (one of the many things done really well) and good tastes along the way. I chose a People's Pop....
As I sat under the Standard Hotel busting through the Saturday crosswod, I met up with my friend Jason and together we enjoyed a perfect NY day strolling through the neighborhood - stopping at Cafe Gitane for a light bite (and fantastic hummus), continuing along Hudson Park, and ending up early evening grabbing a drink and watching the sunset at the Ear Inn.
New York - what's not to love?
