scenes from a day on the highline.
I've heard of the Highline. I think it's a great idea to repurpose the rail line. I don't know that I completely understand the design plan, but I think the Seattle waterfront park(s) will be something like this. It is replacing the elevated Alaska highway that was torn down some years ago. Though it won't be elevated...or maybe there will be a bridge from Pike Market down to the waterfront?
I looked up the Oculus as I wasn't familiar with it. It's an amazing structure. And then I read this, which gave me chills: "It is in alignment with the sun’s solar angles on each September 11, from 8:46 am, when the first plane struck, until 10:28 am, when the second tower collapsed. Its central skylight fits this alignment and washes the Oculus floor with a beam of light."
Now that you’ve conquered the NY Highline, it’s time for the one in Paris. https://www.salutfromparis.com/coulee-verte-paris-highline/ Give me six months notice and I’ll meet you there along with twenty other sketchbook-toting fans of Tiny People. Or would they be personnes minuscules? How would they compare with the New York Highliners? Only one way to find out!
My daughter lives in Manhattan. We walked the Highline on one of our visits. I haven’t been to the new Trade Center yet. The drawing is great.
Ah Lamy, a great weapon of choice
Yes! Offer prints!
Your RGF is not too strong. The wife is beautiful. Enjoy NYC. I have only seen it from the airport passing thru....
Yes! Prints of Oculus; it’s stunning. Say hello to your lovely wife from me. Such interesting trips you take.
Love that I stumbled upon this.
PS: Let wifey be 😇
