MM 213: A View from the New York High Line

We walked the New York High Line one day during our stay in New York City last year. This shot is one of many photos I took of the many views along the way and will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

A view from our walk on the New York High Line.

The High Line is an urban park that used to be a spur of the New York Central Railroad on the west side of Manhattan. The elevated railway was abandoned in 1980. Construction and landscaping began in 2006 and the park opened in 2009. The High Line runs along 10th Avenue for about a mile and a half from Gansevoort Street to 30th Street and then turns west a tad and ends at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on 34th Street.

I’ll show some more photos from our High Line walk in a future posting.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge which is now in its fifth year. Drop by Leanne’s website on Wednesdays (Tuesdays in North America and Europe) to see what she and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. Leanne suggests a specific theme for the first week of each month. The theme for the first week of July will be Seasons.
