We continue our walk along the High Line in lower Manhattan.
Unfortunately, it looks like someone has done a little more than just touch the hands. They're gorn!
Walking under a new development.
The remains of Pier 54, designed by the architectural firm of Warren and Wetmore, who also designed Grand Central Terminal.
This pier was used to disembark survivors of the Titanic tragedy, who had been picked up by RMS Carpathia.
Trees growing between the railroad tracks.
At the southern end of the walk.
Empty space where the tracks used to run through 463 West Street.
The building hosts Westbeth Artists Housing, a low-to middle-income rental housing project developed in 1968 to house artists, their families, and their studios.
Said to be the largest such community in the world, the housing has been used by artists such as Diane Arbus, Vin Diesel, Billy Harper, Joseph Chaikin, Hans Haacke, Bobby Harden, Spencer Holst and Robert De Niro, Sr. [More]
Walking back uptown, we passed several stretches of the railway awaiting reopening as a park.
Entrance to the High Line at W20th St.
