The High Line
New York City has a new park. Part of it is in the neighborhood where my kids' band rehearses. Over the past few years we've witnessed the High Line's construction as well as the changes in the neighborhood that it has brought - art galleries and restaurants have sprung up seemingly overnight.
Despite the hype and the crowds this park is magnificent. It is located on the old elevated railway line that once served the industrial areas along the west side of Manhattan. As you walk above the streets of the Meat Packing District and West Chelsea, you see the buildings from a new vantage point and encounter breathtaking views of the Hudson River. Add to that perfectly executed plantings and hardscape and you have a place that I will return to again and again. If you are in the city I highly recommend a visit to the High Line.
My new shawl design is named for the High Line.
I hope you like it.
