The High Line

Highline 8

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.

It's fabulous and huge! Great new shawl design. And the yarn is super nice.

I definitely need to take Melody to that park when it gets cooler. Riding a subway from Brooklyn in this weather is not appealng right now. You can barely breathe underground waiting on the platforms.

I was just there yesterday! It is a fabulous new park, brilliantly conceived.

The shawl is wonderful. I love the meandering leaf running through the middle.

Oh I really like this one. Great pics, too!

This looks gorgeous! This is actually the first shawl I have seen that has me thinking I could actually wear a shawl!

Very cool.

Gorgeous shawl! My teenaged daughter would love it in her dark purple school colour...

Another fantastic design. I love the large scale of this!

Fabulous design...looking forward to using some worsted hanging around.

Beautiful shawl! You captured the "lines" of the high line in your lovely design.

We just got back from a week vacation in NYC and paid a visit to the high line every night (it's so very gorgeous at sundown!) It was absolutely our favourite part of the trip.

Love it! I love how larger than life it looks and yet, delicate and lacy at the same time. Nice balance.

Gorgeous! I might make it in a nice cotton to wear on breezey summer evenings here in Oz :)

OOOOH . . . pretty! Might look great on two ladies headed for Philly in a few days (and thanks for the update on the park).

HOTNESS. Dude, I Love it. Another winner from Mrs. ThroughtheLOOPS!!

It's beautiful, and seriously, your daughter is a CHAMP for modeling it...it's hot out!

very cool shawl, K! the high line looks really neat. i think erin (minty) posted about it on flickr awhile back.

Your new shawl is fabulous & your daughter looks great modeling it. Thanks for the High Line pics we meant to get there before I left, oh well, perhaps in the fall.

What a gorgeous shawl! I love the length of it as well as the pattern meandering through the center.

It's just wonderful. And I LOVE the High Line.

That fringe is fantastic! I will visit this park when I (someday) take my kids to the city.

Amazing as usual, dearie-lou:)

I LOVE it!!

Must. Have. This. Can't wait for the pattern to come out. Perfect!

This is just gorgeous!
