A CityNoise, we have developed an affinity for neglect places and things.

Which makes the high line a little annoying. (Read more here:

Its the talk of NYC this week. There are even limits on the amount of people that can go on it at one time
But its not really that crowded--least not at 9AM on a cloudy Sunday morning!

Its not urban decay, its not neglected. And not, its certainly not urbex--not urbex lite even!

But for those who cast dispersions at this:

Greensward (Central Park) it ain't--nor is it an abandoned train line. its a park, and a park is for all! (though it may eventually sell many pricey items!)

nice shots... im sorry to see it renovated into the sort of place that "may eventually sell many pricey items", but im glad its still there and being used by the public.

im just glad i got to see it in its previous state :)

Man, that sounds like an expensive place to put a public park. I am glad we don't have anything like that in Chicago, or else Mayor Daley would put another bean up there. Wait a minute, we do have something like that, millennium park IS elevated,.. ugh.

Berries Blooming on the High Line

Thanks to Peter for getting my incredulous ass up there. It ain't the industry or grafs that captures my eye, but the resilient nature!
