THE VIEW

Double click on any image to see details.
The view from the second section of The High Line is in many places as interesting as the park itself. Apartment buildings are as close as 6' from the railing of the elevated walk. It must be highly annoying to some residents; others have decided to make their own political and artistic statements. These pots seem to be resting in rope slings hung on the outside of the balcony. Safe?If you meant to get to church Sunday morning but didn't quite make it, you're only about 10' away from the Church of the Guardian Angel on 10th Ave and W. 23rd. St.And my favorite, a design of stripped branches to enclose a balcony, below. These are not telephoto images. Notice the railing of The High Line, bottom right. I'm leaning against the railing, about 6' from the balcony. Someone designed a fabulous privacy solution. Chairs and a table are just on the other side of the branches.

Fell in love with that raw wood fence across the way last time I was there and wondered about the proximity of those apartment windows along the way. Maybe a view from the other side is on order? Enjoyed this post and also your post about watching the volunteers in your garden very much.

It's like the ocatillo fences you see in Santa Fe!

Sweetgum, Thanks, I'll try to get invited.

E.Z. Maybe that's why I liked the fence so much. Reminded me of one of our favorite towns.
