Had lunch at the house, veggie pot pie from Whole foods. So good. Will take pictures next time i cook one. And went to Union Square to meet my friend DeMarco.
Where i am right now, you have to take the Q train, and Union Square is usually where i get off.
There was the farmer's market there, but i did not buy anything this time. No banana loafs! Hopefully next week.
We walked down 14th St, all the wy down. Chelsea, Meat Packing, and went to the peers. Hudson River Park. Chelsea Peers.
I have never been here before. And was blown away. There is this huge corridor for bikers and joggers, along the Hudson. and you can tell this is all new. The peers, the grass, the urban equipment. It all feels so great. And then the amazing loft buildings. And of course, Christopher Street with all it's history. And The Standard Hotel.
Then there's the High Line. I will make one post about it, will have to explore it first. Take pictures. And explain more about it. But i can say that the High Line is an amazing urban project. There was this old railroad track, not on the ground level, but above on a "bridge" that went miles along Chelsea, along the river. It was abandoned, it was built several decades ago. Instead of destroying the line, decisions were made and it become not only part of the public space, but also exists for it, so it was equipped with all different types of equipment design, making it a unique space in NY where you can walk, sit down and relax, enjoy the gardens, the views or the different art/urban installations that exist.

For all the ones coming here for the first time, please check this out as there is nothing like the High Line around the world.
