Views from the High Line, NYC

This bird’s eye view of Seventh Avenue seems like quintessential New York City to me with the yellow cabs standing out as a pattern of bright spots in the late afternoon sun. (Another location in Manhattan to get this kind of view is from the pedestrian bridge on Columbia University’s campus.)

New York City is also known for the rooftop water tanks, and these two caught my attention against the blue sky. The tanks and the windows also make a study of same yet different…

This urban art bring whimsy to the view of the monotonous window grid.

Descending from the High Line into Chelsea Market, I enjoyed the display of aromatic spices. They reminded me of my visit to Istanbul, Turkey. New York is quite the international city; you hear foreign language spoken often on the sidewalks.

What could be more traditionally American than apple pie and Oreo cookies? This graphic that looks like a very early advertisement is a wall mural inside Chelsea Market. Does it bring you back 50 years?

New York City is a place filled with visual interest. I hope you enjoyed some of these sights from my Sunday afternoon walk.
