West 14th Street

The High Line gives you a nice view down west 14th Street at one point, which was strangely devoid of cars when I took this photo. This area has now become trendy and instead of meatpacking plants you now mostly find designer boutiques and fancy restaurants (except you can't really see any of them in this photo!)

A nice wide and airy street, you dont feel so enclosed in streets like this.

une belle vue. Il y a un article dans un journal français, disant que beaucoup de boutiques avaient fermes dans NYC et que pour la première fois même la 5th avenue était touché par la crise.

I thought it looked like the area was in some kind re-development ... nice perspective shot!

Very atypical for 14th St. A Sunday afternoon? I like the brick building to the left and the multi-turreted tower in the distance beyond it!

It's amazing the transformation capacity of NYC; from meatpacking to fashion, only in New York...
