An otherwise random 7 train encounter means a lot more if you’ve seen this.

I love dogs too, but they will just never be as cool as cats.

My parting shot from the unfinished phase 2, looking north from near 23 Street. Looking forward to taking the “after” version of this photo when this section of the line opens next year.

Looking south down what I think is Phase 2 of the project, opening next year. Too bad the surface isn’t smooth enough for a killer bike/skate park before the green stuff and benches come in.

This is from the south side of the rail yards, looking east.That pointy building in the distance looks kind of familiar. The building on the right is one of those filing cabinets for widows and young professionals that Manhattan is especially good at manufacturing lately.

The first phase of the High Line is open and it’s a smash. If you haven’t visited yet, you need to.

Today I was lucky to go on a tour of the parts not yet open to the public.

This photo is of the section that loops around the West Side Yards, just south of the Javits Center. We’re looking to the southeast here.

Bloomberg Tower has a really cool mid-block space, but it’s too bad there’s not more to entice the public to come in. Hard to believe that beneath this uber-urban block development lies a (rather nice) Home Depot.
