Cranes on the High Line

Cranes on the High Line

New York.

Approaching the north end of the High Line, Gary and I came upon a large construction site with lots of exposed ironwork and more cranes than I’ve ever seen before at a single site.

There are six cranes showing on the image above, seven on the one below (actually eight in the image blow if you count the one attached to the left edge of the building). Amazing.

North end of the High Line, New York.

It’s amazing how much new construction is going on along the High Line. Who would have thought turning a rotting elevated train platform into a park could transform some tough neighborhoods?

This is right next to the Penn Station rail yard and a very large building is going up with many cranes working the site. This monster was parked off to the side and I could not resist taking a picture of it. It looks like a cross between a weapon and a space vehicle. There may be larger mobile cranes but I doubt they’re much larger.

Can you imagine trying to drive this rig around New York?

Along the High Line, New York. Gary and I walked the length of the High Line (he’d never seen it) and it was great. I’m just processing those images now, three weeks after the fact.

This was my last walk with the Fuji X100S, sold it last week. I loved the camera but found it a bit big for hiking and walking around. Amazing since I used to lug a Canon 5D and assorted lenses around New York with me. I may revisit another version of the camera down the road but for now I’m content with the Ricoh GR and Sony RX100 III. The Fuji does take outstanding images though, no doubt about it. And, the hybrid viewfinder is incredible.
