In the past 6 months, I’ve had the pleasure of taking two visits to the High Line specifically to spend time with family and take photos. Right away, a visitor realizes how photo-friendly of a place it is. Modern art emerges from verdant gardens; original locomotive rails weave in and out of the pedestrian walkway—all with the distinct urban backdrop of the city. Here are a number of my favorite photos—watch as the season changes!
The Standard Hotel looks proudly down on the High Line.
Creepy looking guy…
Frank Gehry’s IAC building…playfully known as “the Iceberg.” In the background: Jean Nouvel’s geometrically-striking “100-11th” apartment building.

Even in winter, splashes of color are to be found
