High Line

Luckily the High Line was no tightrope, so I didn't fall off. Favorite part, the way the plantings often appear ungardened, weed-like, self-sown. That is fine gardening that hardly seems gardened at all. The Chelsea Waterplayground at 23rd and the West Side Highway is a great end destination if you're walking the line with young ones. Why do not we have such immodest fountains in Brooklyn? Are we too bashful?

The elevated park will not be open on the evening of July 4th. Could have been a great idea. Or not. Definitely would be hard on the plants.
