A Surreal View From the High Line

Today brought one of the strangest views from the High Line yet: A few of us were up on the site this afternoon to see how it was faring in the frigid weather, when we caught a chilling glimpse of the US Airways plane that crashed into the icy Hudson today. (Amazingly, even in the sub-freezing temperatures, there are no fatalities reported.)

Emergency vehicles– on the land, in the air and in the river– swarmed around the mostly-submerged plane, which by that time had been evacuated of all passengers and crew. While we watched, tugboats were able to pull the waterlogged jet’s nose and one of its wings above the freezing river.
