Went to the highline today. The sun beat down on me on my friend as we admired the views and the landscaping. The new buildings down there are fairly avant garde many are ugly and look like they should be in East Berlin but at least there is still some of old New York shining through.Hello Chrysler building!!! The meatpacking district is full of boring designer shops for the most part. It sucks how everything cool is co-opted. Oh well that's life, change is inevidible but the Highline get's F.I.B's seal of approval for recycling.
