Some examples of the various flowers and vegetation you can see up on the Highline.  And along the way you will see these little signs asking you to “Keep It Wild.  Keep On the Path”, which is ever so slightly sad because one of my favorite things about parks is being able to sit on the grass and you can’t really do that here, but that’s ok.  Still a really great place to be!!

A little ladybug that landed on my sunglasses and decided to migrate to my skirt.  Very cute.

The pavers reach out like fingers to intertwine with the vegetation, gravel, and railroad tracks up on the Highline.  Very nice way to meet the landscaping and existing railroad tracks, fading out as they reach further out for the “paths”.

Hovering over 10th ave is a portion of the Highline with wood, stepped seating where you can lounge and watch the cars passing from under you.  It’s a pretty nice little seating area where you can sit and car/people watch those below on the street level.
