Revisiting New York's High Line

New York's High Line, a converted rail bridge along the Hudson River, is an amazing example of urban regeneration efforts. Last time I visited the place, soon after it opened to the public, it blew me away. But it was not even half-finished and I always wanted to go back to see the rest. Last month I went to New York and managed to spend a couple of hours walking the entire length of the elevated park, from the gentrified and so-cool-it-hurts Meatpacking District to the Javits Convention Center.

It was a hot Sunday and the place was packed with tourists, locals and numerous newlyweds who monopolised parts of the park for prolonged periods of time. Forget Central Park, it seems having your wedding day snaps taken against a derelict warehouse is in this season.

The gallery below has no newlyweds in them, but a few of my favourite snaps from the day. And I'll definitely be back to see the next phase of the project when it's ready a few years from now.
