Photographer's Note

When we said we were going to New York City, whoever we met told us the "High Line" was a must, and we weren't disappointed !
The High Line, also known as "High Line Park" is a 2.33 km linear park created on an elevated section of a disused New York central railroad called the "West Side Line". It operated from 1847 to 1980, when the last train was run by "CONRAIL".
It extends fron Gansevoort st (between 13th & 14th st) to 34th st, and was refurbished between 2006 to 2015.
It's a haven of nature and entertainment in the middle of the bustling city, but at the same time, it gives you a tremendous outlook on different architectural and artistic developments.

The main picture shows a wooded area in the fall, with the Standard Hotel in the background.

6WS will tell you a little more and illustrate this exciting walk.

WS4 shows "10 Hudson yards builing" in the background, and in front of it, "HL23" a residential building of condos, with futuristic architecture, which I now know thanks to Worldcitizen's help. I would have liked to write it in the WS note, but it's impossible to edit a WS note now :-(
