I made the trip to New York in the spring and finally got through all of my photos. This post featured photos of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and more. Here’s a post featuring my favorite landscapes and cityscapes captured while visit the Big Apple. All photos are available for prints and commercial use.
I spent 10 days in New York and one of my favorite experiences was walking the High Line. The High Line is a 1-mile New York City linear park built on a 1.45-mile section of the elevated former New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway. A similar project in Paris, the 3-mile Promenade plantée, completed in 1993, was the inspiration for this project. The High Line currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center. Formerly the viaduct of the High Line went as far south as Spring Street just north of Canal Street, but the lower section was demolished in 1960.

When you aren’t in a rush to get anywhere the subway is great and I would much rather watch people in a subway then be stuck in a car in traffic on a freeway. The New York City subway was pretty much what I thought it would be. People would sometimes run to the subway cars and rush into them like their life was on the line. A large majority of the time people just didn’t look that happy though. I am sure if I rode the subway everyday for years I would have fallen into the New York City routine. The only time I had to wait a significant amount of time is when one of the subway lines had a stalled train and the crowds built up quite a bit. Outside of that the New York City subway was a very efficient mode of transportation. The New York City subway is one […]
