This time last year the plantings on the Highline Park were still new enough that Autumn looked a little spindly and bare. I liked that too; Autumn is supposed to be austere. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the lush colorful displays that have taken root in the past year.
Actually, these photos are already a few weeks old, so things might be looking sparse again now. But the design and hard work that has gone into this place continues to impress me, and to provide me with occasional relief from my urban claustrophobia.
