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.
