The High Line, NYC–  The High Line is a public park, ~1.5 miles in length, built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.  The park offers interesting photographic opportunities in an urban environment.  If you prefer to spend time indoors, the Whitney Museum of American Art and B&H Photo Video bookend the High Line.  In addition, there are smaller galleries, as well as restaurants, at street level along the park route. This NYC destination provides a number of options- walk the Line, visit the Museum (which has interesting exhibits on display during the month of April), or become overwhelmed perusing all of the photographic equipment available at B&H.  Of course, other destinations are only a taxi- or Uber-ride away! I am including several links of the area for your perusal.

Depending on the level of interest, we can contract for a 14 passenger minivan, a 30 passenger minibus, or a 50+ passenger bus. Pick-up and drop-off would be in Easton; anticipate a departure time to NYC at ~5:30am with a return at ~11:00pm.  Based on the current quotes which expire in a few days, the transportation cost is $100 per person (less if we fill the 50+ passenger bus).  Payment is due in advance and there is a “no refund” policy unless there is a trip cancellation by the bus company.

At this time, we have reserved a minivan for April 10 and a commitment of a minimum of 14 travelers is required before I sign a transportation contract. Please let me know by the close of business tomorrow, February 28, if you plan on attending.  Send an email to outings@tidewatercameraclub.org and include “High Line” as the subject.
