high line nyc

we spend a lot of time walking the high line before downtown dinner dates. we'll stroll and people watch until an acceptable dinner hour has been reached that doesn't qualify us as geriatric. i think new yorkers eat later than most and i have yet to conform. anywho, it's the perfect pre-dinner time waster plus you'll likely catch the sunset. we usually end up at company for pizza.

for whatever reason, high line walking evokes big life discussions involving the future and buying apartments we can't yet afford. maybe it's the perspective on the city that gets me all introspective, and really, it's too many spectives right before dinner. but it happens every time.

you'll always find well-dressed downtown sorts of people walking the high line. the types that wear all black, lots of leather, and pose in conspicuous corners.

Ah yes, long walks and introspective conversations. I think Mark Twain said something about how he walked only partly for the exercise, primarily for the conversation. Hope you gained some perspective. Lovely pictures.

My favorite pic is the last one with the city streets below. Great shot. I wish we had a high line. And I guarantee you that we eat dinner at the same time. I'm starving by 5!

Beautiful photos, as always! I would love to walk there, and do some people watching. It looks like a great place for that.

walks always lead us to be introspective too and lead to those big deep conversations--i wouldn't have it any other way.

this is my favorite walk. i'm so ready to be there!

Gorgeous pics, per usual! I'm totally with you on dinner, we usually eat around 6. However, that's mostly because I love cooking so much I can't wait to start on the meal! I'd go for a walk after dinner every night though, if I could peel my husband away from the sport of the moment...

Beautiful pictures! The high line is my favorite part of New York that I've seen :) And those tacos look delicious...I don't know if I'd make it to a more youthful dinner hour with those tacos tempting me.

The photos are great. The light!!!

Walking the Highline is one of my favorite activities but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people who have the same genius idea as us. It gets so crowded around the time of the sunset but it still doesn't stop me from going...it's just so beautiful. And those conversations, the spectives, seem to happen more often than not the older we get...at least in my experience.

Such chic New Yorkers! I think a late afternoon/early evening walk on the High Line sounds amazing.

Signe said...

Love the pictures! I really long to go back and take a slow walk. Amazing what they have done with this - and to think about how near it was that they teared everything down.

Rebeka said...

Ahh you and Ed and your new York life are just so cool. I'm totally jealous. Also the Highline was the bing homepage a few days ago and it made me think of you for some weird reason (weird because we've never met) ha.

Buenos aires! Most restaurants don't even open before 10 pm and are not full before midnight. Then of course you have till 4-5 am to burn off the late dinner doing the tango. The shots are gorgeous!

"Spective" dates sound great! Becca, that last photo of Ed is amazing. And I'm a little jealous that everyone is wearing coats and scarves. We've had one rainy day so far this fall. Today was 92ยบ. I know, I shouldn't complain, right?

nicole said...

DANG! Ed looks hawt in these photos. :)

This was high (hee hee) on my list when we visited NY in 2010 summer. I was not disappointed and can't wait to return there!

Susan said...

We eat at a geriatric hour, haha...love those shots. I've never seen that viewing area with the benches, cool!

Did I maybe take all of your advice in this post last night? Yep. Took some out of town guests to walk the highline then to Co. for pizza. At company I saw this guy who I recognized but couldn't place. Then I realized it was Ed. In real life. And I felt like a complete creepy stalker person. Good to know you're all just normal people too.

rebecca said...

MnNYC-
yes! ed was at co. last night, without me! thanks for the note. :)
