walking on the high line, yeah.

Saturday afternoon Zach and I went for a walk on the newly open high line. There is only one entrance point, so to get there we walked along the route on the street for a while. This is The Standard Hotel, it spans over the high line, with a restaurant at its base.
After waiting in a bit of a line (!) we walked along the paths.
I love the layers in this photograph of the meetpacking district with the new buildings.
Then... a storm began to roll in quickly. There is a tiered seating area with a large glass bridge looking over the street. In this photo the seating and building behind are the reflection superimposed over the storm clouds. Looks very ominous!
We walked through the rest of the high line quickly, as we could see the storm clouds coming. It started to rain as we were walking down the exit stairs, and then it started pouring! We took refuge under some scaffolding, our umbrella just didn't stop the driving rain! The storm blew over after 15 min or so, and then we met some friends for dinner at a bbq restaurant at chelsea.
