summer on the high line.

high line nyc

photos of the high line!? shocker. between traveling, moving, and ed's new job i had this overwhelming feeling that i've completely missed the summery to-do's in nyc. summer in nyc is perfection.... until we move on to the next season and i say the exact same thing.

people's pops on the high line

i've yet to try the shaved ice at people's pops but the popsicles are tasty, i assure you. props to the guy who shaves down that hunk of ice. whew.

people's pops

the mass exodus to leave the city starts in august and i'm always surprised how empty it leaves this place. we're left with a break in the crowds, shorter lines for froyo, empty parking spots, and more space to stretch my arms during yoga class.

yet somehow the high line is always equally as crowded, specifically on the weekends.

people's pops, blue bottle coffee, and l'arte del gelato all in one swoop. the high line food situation has come a long way.

after popsicle appetizers we rode to redfarm for pan-fried pork and veggie dumplings. for the love of fried rice, that place cannot be beat.

ed and i headed home just as the sun set over the hudson, my bike bag full of doughboy cookies to be eaten on the roof. i daresay we soaked up summer in nyc all in one evening.

Fantastic! Summer feels like it is pretty much over here- schools go back this week and the sky is pretty grey. I feel I've made the most of it- but it is too short!

If you don't mind me asking - where is your bag from?

Great pictures, I love the high line even though it's super crowded every time I go. Btw, is that a Linus tote/pannier bag for your bike? How do you like it? Was thinking of getting something for my bike. Christina

That giant hunk of ice looks amazing, and you might just be the most gamine girl on the highline.

This is so lovely! Can't wait to discover NY in September. I'll make sure to go for a walk on the high line :) xx

Gosh, I miss shaved ice! I can't believe that in Europe, land of no air conditioning, there is no shaved ice - or decent popsicles! My next trip to NYC, I am heading straight there. I must also chime in on the bag - adorable!
