Graffiti on the High Line

POST #    742

Finally, the end of my High Line posts. It turns out that I have tons of photos of graffiti on the High Line. I don't have the skill they call restraint when it comes to deciding what photos to put up, so here are nine photos that I like. I remember when I was a kid in this fine city and there was much more graffiti. Subways were covered in graffiti, which gave the the Subway system a somewhat gritty quality that you don't see in today. I love the amenities of the new trains as much as the next guy, but I miss seeing graffiti covered trains fly by in a fury of colors.

I noticed the turnstiles. Did the High Line once carry passenger trains? I thought it was a freight line.

no, those turnstiles were placed there afterwards. they actually look like ones that would be placed at an amusement park or something. they are not quite robust enough for transit use.

and as far as i know, the high line was only a freight line.

i love that revs/cost piece up by 23rd street on the high line- one of my favorite rollers, because it fits in so well with the old signage and more colorful burners on the walls.
