(June 26) Viza and I went to a presentation at the Marriott Marquis, and then afterward to cleanse ourselves of Times Square, we walked over to the High Line. I like the park, but it seems to me the view is more interesting than the park itself. I’m not sure if that’s what they intended or not.

You can still (barely) see the tracks

the original air train
In 2010, it’s hard to imagine locomotives several stories overhead

sailing down the hudson
New Jersey. You don’t want to go there. Nobody does.

even the sun can't bear to look directly at jersey

meat packing district
I wonder what it costs to live in those apartments

apparently the stop sign here is optional
While we were there, I counted dozens of cars, mostly cabs, running the stop sign.

and the hotel actually encourages flashers
The ExhibitionistStandard Hotel is built above the High Line and offers parkgoers a free peep show.

(June 12) Needed to go for a walk. It was too late to go grocery shopping, so I went behind the train station this time, and kept going.

non-metered parking
When I was a kid, this was just a dipshit train station. Now it’s the end of the electrified line, and it’s a huge complex.

(June 6) Paid a visit to Lindsay and Delilah. I’m always happy to see her for a number of reasons. Took in some eye candy at the park while I waited for her to get home. It reminds me how much I miss Brooklyn and the life I had there.

I finally got a shot of this in the daylight

people skulls
I don’t quite get the message, which includes dudes paddling bathtubs.

Mr. Chicken apparently lives around here

dickchicken was here first, yo!

Sunday. (May 30) Where else would I be?

tunnel driving
We missed the turnoff for the Queensborough Bridge, and ended up going through the Midtown Tunnel after paying a delightfully outrageous toll.
