The Changing High Line

The High Line has certainly changed since the first section opened in 2009.  Expansive views east to the city and west across the Hudson into New Jersey.  How things have changed.   This is a new area for development with lots of apartment buildings going up.  I have mixed feelings about it all.  I love my neighborhood and love the change (new coffee shops, restaurants, galleries) but then miss the grittiness of the far west side.  Ok, so I never saw the real gritty since we moved here in 2008 and it was quite a bit different 25 years ago.  So I’ll capture the change in pictures.  And when the J Crew opens up in the brand new mixed retail/residential/theater/park area opens…I probably will be shopping there.

 

And a few months ago when these buildings were going up.
