welcome to highline, again! we managed to visit the highline in a beautiful weather weekend – saturday (noon) and sunday (noon), twice. the planting are so thriving that at some areas you could totally forget you’re walking on a elevated park! what to stream: check out the documentary urbanized (2011) where the project is discussed from the city, community, and design team’s perspective.

+ tree tagging in feeney’s, new hope, pa i still can’t believe how nice the weather is today. not only breezy all the time- there is NO humidity. none. consider the weather we had in the past couple days – awfully hot and sticky – today is like a total blessing. even though it was pretty muddy in the tree area (i believe it is from the crazy storm we had three nights ago), this […]
