At long last–spring has sprung!
This week I took my first lunchtime walk along the High Line, an public park built on what was once an elevated freight rail line on the west side of Manhattan.
The rail ties have been worked into both the landscaping as well as the walkways. There are several different planting zones and public art displays can be found throughout.

It’s still early in the season and areas look bare, but before you know it the High Line will be lush, green, and overflowing with plant life.

Hyacinths in NYC
Despite the recent cold and snow, there are undeniable signs of spring. These hyacinths are growing outside my office building. I can’t wait to spend a lunch hour walking the High Line to see what else is coming up!
One of the great things about the New York City Subway System (besides getting around the city quickly) is the art that you’ll find in many of the city’s stations.
Along the J/Z line there are a number of stained glass installations. Here’s a couple from the Kosciuszko Street station…
Very pretty, yes? I just adore the blues and purples with the touches of pale green in this one…
What kinds of public art installations inspire you?
