It’s been quite a while since my last blog post, but here we go again.
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to travel to New York (mid-town Manhattan, specifically) through work. While most of my time there was, of course, work related, I did have the opportunity to spend a Friday evening and Saturday in the city. It has been more than 20 years since i was in Manhattan, and a lot has changed since then.
On the Friday evening, at the recommendation of a colleague, I walked down the High Line, an old elevated railway line, converted into a public space. The High Line gives you a certain view of mid-town Manhattan that’s impossible to get from street level, and is well worth a visit if you’re in that part of NYC.
Here are a few photos from my walk down the High Line, and back towards 5th Avenue.
Views in the distance of iconic Manhattan buildings are visible along the route.
New Jersey in the background.
The High Line seems to attract some fantastic modern architecture. It’ll be interesting to see if it stands the test of time, in the way that the classic NYC buildings have.
The High Line affords some interesting views behind buildings that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Empire State in the distance.
Those are the Silver Towers.

Huge amount of construction in this part of the city.

You can’t go far in New York without running into an Irish pub.
