Winter Has Arrived!

The cobblestone streets and generally busy sidewalks of the West Village and the Meatpacking District momentarily slowed to a crawl late last night.  

As the winter wonderland melted and quickly became a grim rainy day, we at the High Line find ourselves reminiscing about how darn pretty the High Line looks in the snow.  Rusty B is a gal for all seasons! 

Here’s a little taste to satisfy your winter woes.  These lovely images were taken exactly two years ago — February 12, 2006 — months before construction began.  My how the High Line has changed.
