Photography: The High Line in NYC

I went for a walk a few weekends ago along The High Line, one of NYC’s more photogenic outdoor spaces. The High Line is a pretty cool place: it is a public park built on the old rail yards along the Hudson River, on the west side of Manhattan. (You can still see the railroad ties in some places.) The park has food concessions, gorgeous plants and flowers, and always-changing pieces of art commissioned by Friends of The High Line and High Line Art. I hope my pictures from the day inspire you to visit!

I love the contrast of these aqua-colored posts in front of Our Lady of Guadalupe at Saint Bernard Church against the neutral background of the building. (The church is on W. 14th St., as you approach the entrance to The High Line.)

The flowers on The High Line are always stunning!  .

I thought these were cool, and just weird looking enough. If anyone knows what they are, please let me know!

I love street scenes in black and white.

So many hats!

This art installation is called “prop,” and the artist is Phyllida Barlow.

This piece is called C.R.E.A.M., and it is by Sable Elyse Smith.

I posted a few more High Line pics on my Instagram. You can see them here! I only walked The High Line from the entrance on 14th St. to 23rd St. I’ll go back another day and do the last 10 blocks!

p.s. I plan on taking more self-guided picture-taking excursions this summer and into the fall.
