Do not visit the High Line in the middle of the day. Go early or late, I think.
Even with the sea of humanity, it was still a thrill to visit my first Piet Oudolf garden. Since I am not afraid to make bold pronouncements, I will go ahead and call this the greatest new public space of the 21st Century. I can't be the first person to say so. What else could possibly push it out of the Number 1 position?
From now on when I visit New York, I will try to come here first thing in the morning. It sounds like Guy's job will be happy if he goes to New York at least once or even twice a year. I will tag along when I can. I think we might go in October. In the meantime, I will fondly recall a blazing hot Saturday in June.
Good for you, New York.
High Line, I look forward to our next meeting.
