NYC -the saga

I guess I really love this city because I can't seem to stop blogging pictures about it! Every time I come to New York, a bolt of energy races through me and I get excited waking up in the morning wondering what I'll discover that day. Mainly though, I just get energized by all the people I see when I step out onto the streets.

The diversity is like no other in the world here! You see it every time you ride on the subway, and it's not just differences in skin color and languages -which is amazing - but also how people dress here. I love me my flip flops and jeans, but sometimes you just want to jazz things up a little and in this city, you can definitely do that without sticking out like a sore thumb. So much style and funk here, it's like eye candy.

Aside from the people, the food here is divine, and the buildings...I'm so in love with the buildings. These next few are from the Chelsea area.

Chelsea has something called The Highline where trains used to run above the streets in the West Side. Friends of the Highline and the city of New York have now preserved the tracks and converted it to an awesome public park. I was such a fan of this place that I couldn't stop clicking away. Check out the chaise Drew's sitting on. It rolls on the tracks!

If someone can please tell me how they get the top cars down to the ground, I'd be very grateful. Does each car just slide out and then down?
