Round Robin Photo Challenge

Our photo challenge for today is "Looking Up/Looking Down." Thank you Carly and Karen.

A cosy fire pit

These first two photos are looking down from the High Line.

The High Line is located on Manhattan's West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. Section 1 of the High Line, which opened to the public on June 9, 2009, runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street. Instead of tearing down the old rail line the city and rail enthusiasts decided to develop a park.

Looking up to the High Line from the street.

"The parks are the Nation's pleasure grounds and the Nation's restoring places.... The parks...are an American idea; it is one thing we have that has not been imported."

Linking List (As of 4:29 AM MST)

Hi Mary,

I read about this walkway in the NYTimes awhile back. They were saying how you could look right into some apartments along the way. (Some apparently x-rated!!)

Carolyn Ford said...

Amazing views! That fire-pit would catch my eye in a heart beat! How wonderful that spot must be on a cool afternoon or evening...

Carly said...

Hi Mary :)

What an interesting place. NYC is so full of wonderful places from little cubby holes to great big gorgeous skyscrapers! LOVE IT! Big cities are just the best! :)


Sandy said...

Fire pit! Awesome!! I've heard about that walkway on the news too! Great photos!

Barb said...

The foliage is looking very green, Mary - sorry I must have been thinking of the wrong place in my former comment!

Rita said...

mary, I always enjoy your photos and tid-bits about New York. I have a cousin who lives there and keep saying I am going to make it one day.

Keeping a list from blogs like yours of things to see in case I ever do.

Thanks for your visit my way.

I love looking down on that cozy fire pit! I wanted to post more pictures but having problem uploading to Blogger after the first one that I gave up.
