I found a new favorite place in the world today: the newly-opened High Line. It is as magical and beautiful and unique a space as I have experienced in any urban area. I am sure that the High Line is destined to become as classic and quintessential a New York City sight as Times Square or the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty, only a thousand times more lovely.
My photos do not do it justice -- I ran out of batteries in my point-and-shoot shortly after arriving, and took the remaining ones on my cell phone. I can't wait to go back and spend a day photographing the heck out of the place.
