Art in NYC

When experiencing art on the streets, your thoughts are interrupt, and you start to see your surroundings with new eyes; with a new perspective. The buildings, the people you meet, the shops you pass all changes in the light of the art. Your brain will automatically start wonder many things. Many more different things than if the art was not present.

The High Line

A walk through NYC at The High Line on Manhattan is a must see and a wonderful surprise to the otherwise busy Lower Manhattan.
I was amazed that it wasn’t until my fifth time in NYC I discovered this wonderful walk in the city.
But I guess that’s the thing about NYC, you experience a little something new at each visit.

The High Line in NYC was built in the 1930s, as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project called the West Side Improvement.
It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan’s largest industrial district.

No trains have run on the High Line since 1980.
Friends of the High Line, a community-based non-profit group, works in partnership with the City of New York to preserve and maintain the structure as an elevated public park.
It’s a great “walk through NYC”, with a lot of art and interesting architecture to see. If you are in NYC don’t miss it.
