Well hello there New York City! It doesn’t get much more NY than this, walking amidst the skyscrapers. The High Line is an old train route that has been abandoned and turned into a park. They’ve kept the tracks in place and planted shrubs and flowers around them. It’s a beautiful mix of industry + nature.
Places like this really make me love New York. It’s not an instantly easy city to love. It can be overwhelming, and I hate cabs. But usually when I do get out of the apartment it’s a good time like today.
I’m always trying to pause and take it all in. Sure, it’s just a city. But I’m here! And I would have never guessed that I would be if you had asked me a year ago. Learning to go where life takes me.
To give you a sense of the vibe…we were walking around and heard *click click tap tap tap* only to look over and see a man with a typewriter in the park. He thought he was being funny, but I wasn’t buying it. My guess is he went home to his Macbook Air and posted all about it. ;-)
That’s it! The end of the line… (har har).
