From Boston to Newport Rhode Island.
Our good friends Nancy and Jeff said we were invited to Newport to join not only their resident friends Diane and Rob but as well Karen and John who were sailing there to watch the 2012 America's Cup. What a great opportunity! What a wonderful day it's been! Thanks to all of you folks for having us and sharing this day. We'll certainly not forget. Looking forward to seeing all you on the other side of the pond soon.

New York City High Line

Monday July 9th we took a walk to the second section of the High Line that opened in June 7 2011. In November 2010 we had discovered the southernmost section, from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, opened as a city park on June 8, 2009 thanks to our friend Ray.
The High Line is a 1-mile New York City linear park built on a 1.45-mile section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway. The High Line Park currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center.
The recycling of the railway into an urban park has spurred real estate development in the neighborhoods which lie along the line.
The photographs of my reportage intend to show you the trail through my lens. In a very short period of time some of those pics will be history I believe!
