High Line Extension

4 Jun


Here are some of my favorite images I shot during our visit to the High Line park extension this past Tuesday.







Edit: There’s been a lot of comments on the man waving from the window in the last photo. He’s actually a cardboard cutout, which I had though was pretty rad.

    Very cool.

      I really loved this place in NY!!! Great!!!

    Very industrial urban chic — love ’em (especially the last one…discovering the person waving was a nice surprise!).


    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

      Best part is that wasn’t someone waving. It was a cardboard cutout! Very clever if you ask me.

      • Mikalee Byerman June 5, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

        That. Is. AWESOME.

        Now I’m off the browse the Internet to see if I can find one for my own window…

    Lovely combination of old and new architecture! Makes a city come alive!

    Ahh I am so in love with the Highline!

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

      Me too! It’s one of my favorite places to visit in Manhattan. Though I still think Brooklyn’s the better borough ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Interesting photos!

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 3:44 pm #

      Thank you! I tend to feel a bit like an art nerd when I photograph stuff, so I appreciate that!

    Love this place…..great shots!

  9. Carlie Chew June 5, 2012 at 4:07 pm #

    Amazing pictures!

    These are absolutely brilliant photos. I love when I have the chance to get over to the High Line. Even though it’s often crowded, I still find a refreshing calmness.

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 4:32 pm #

      Thank you! I agree on it’s calmness. There was a school trip visiting the the park while we were there and you’d never really know the difference.

    I had never heard of the Highline until recently, and i think it is so freaking cool! I don’t know when I will ever get to NYC, but when I do, I am hittin’ the trail!

  12. nazarioartpainting June 5, 2012 at 5:49 pm #

    Interesting photos.

  13. The FaithBook June 5, 2012 at 5:51 pm #

    I love the last picture with the guy waving through the window. It just adds so much character.

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

      It’s funny because he’s a cardboard cutout. I did a double take and then remembered a typical NYer probably would wave like that ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • The FaithBook June 7, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

        Lol. Well that makes it all the better! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Gerald June 5, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    Awesome urban art you’ve captured here. Only in NY we can see some fresh new modern hip art. I’ll I see when I drive around LA is graffiti and overwritten graffiti as is gang names. I thought that was Paquiao for a second in that 3rd pic.

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 6:45 pm #

      Thanks! The piece in the third photo is actually a JR. He’s one of my and my husband’s favorite street artists, so it was a treat to see he had work by the high line we were unaware of!

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing!

    Love the shots. Hard to believe there is such a great spot in the middle of Brooklyn.
    You Matter! Smiles, Nancy

    • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

      Thank you Nancy! High Line Park is in Manhattan. As you can see from the photos, it was worth the trip from Brooklyn to check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • juststartwithmonday June 5, 2012 at 10:30 pm #

        Hmmmm. I didn’t read correctly. Manhattan is even better. I’m going to check this out more. I don’t visit NYC often but when I do, would like to see this. Thanks. You Matter! Smiles, Nancy

      • Corrie June 5, 2012 at 10:52 pm #

        New York City would love to have you! Come visit us soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Alyssa June 5, 2012 at 11:04 pm #

    Cool shots; the photos brought out the essence of the place. Haven’t been to NYC, I’ll check the place as soon as I got there. Cheers on making this post to freshly pressed, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love that there’s a maple leaf in the High Line’s logo… ๐Ÿ™‚ Feels rather welcoming to a Canadian! Aside from that… it’s one of my favourite places in New York! Love it! Can’t wait to visit the new extension! Thanks for posting such lovely images…brings back lovely memories.

        I stood many nights as a child watching the world through my bedroom window. Images are caputured as silent movements, yet astounding and photographic to the eye. Cheers!
