The Highline

On Saturday, JD and I went for a walk on the Highline.
I love the Highline, but as it has become more and more popular
over the last couple of years, it has become too busy to be enjoyable.
On warm, sunny days you end up shuffling behind throngs of tourists who
have come to see what it's all about, constantly having to stop for pictures and
people who get distracted and suddenly stop walking in the middle of the path.
Basically, I am not a fan of crowds, and navigating a narrow walkway packed
with slow moving people is more trouble than it's worth. 

But on gray days when the air is cold and the wind blows over the elevated
park, the crowd thins. Spring and Summer are when the Highline is at it's best
(beautiful flowers, vendors, and perfect weather) and worst (too crowded). 
But the end of Autumn, the very beginning of Winter is just as lovely.

I hope you had a lovely weekend.
