Only a few avenues away from my family’s apartment runs the Highline, an old rail that was recently developed into a cool walkway that runs from about 13th to 31st. Before, it was a rail that ran to the businesses there, particularly for the meatpacking district. My uncle said he remembered seeing the meat come in and the workers in their white coats splattered with blood. They’d haul trash along the line, too. A couple years ago, it was converted into a cool walkway. Along the tracks are places to sit, a small amphitheatre, and a little bird condominium that I post for you, too. Yesterday, folks were out taking in the beautiful weather. We walked along until 26th and stepped down back onto the avenue, made our way east homewards.
