I just spent a fantastic few days in New York City , which in my eyes is the best city in the world . . . What do you know i hear you say !? Well to be honest , not much . . .
Walking towards the high line i noticed this lovely book shop called 192 Books on tenth street at 21st , i couldn't help but go in and have a nose around. These type of book shops really get my imagination going. (http://www.192books.com)
I spent some time walking along the high line which is a park built on a section of elevated train track , its on the lower west side of Manhatten. It really is a wonderful sight. This was the first time id ever heard of it , what a fantastic experience to be walking in such a wonderful space in the heart of a beautiful city. (http://www.thehighline.org)
View of the Hudson River.
I can imagine sitting here in the summer with a nice cold can of Strongbow : )
Sun loungers that move along the track
Possibly the best pizza Ive ever had ! From the world famous Artichoke Pizza on 10th Avenue (artichokepizza.com)
The Standard Hotel which is built directly above the high line.
Also i found this nice piece on the building
The look of this building really reminds me of a block of flats not to far from where i grew up in Essex , i will leave you to make your own judgments.
