This is part 6 and the end of the High Line: I ♥ NY series. Links to earlier posts: Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4, and Part 5.

As seen in photos posted earlier, the sunset was beautiful but it got completely dark by around 5:30 – 6pm.  Some of the rooms of the Standard Hotel had their lights on and the hotel looked like a massive pixelated icon in the sky.  Through the window of a room near the top, I saw someone jumping and bouncing up and down on what must be a bed.  At that time, the High Line was navigable only by certain strategically-placed illumination providing pools of cool white light.  The park and its surroundings took on a mysterious, organic and yet hi-tech, alien atmosphere.

By 6pm, the park had gotten much colder than the afternoon, and most people had left.  My camera battery was running low because of the frigid temperature and it had to be warmed up periodically in my pocket.  Here are the last few pictures before my camera gave in as we were lured towards the bright lights and warmth of the shops below the park.  We ended the day dining on the famous burgers at the Corner Bistro – another NYC destination.
