We are having a staycation (This word “staycation” is so useful, and yet so annoying.) of sorts around here. Hence, the lack of daily posts. We haven’t been doing many indoor activities, either. Instead, we’ve been exploring the city.
Fans of Peter Brown’s book, The Curious Garden, may know that he was inspired by Manhattan’s High Line Railway. The first section of the new High Line park opened this summer. It is an incredibly delightful meeting of urban decay and urban renewal.
