Manhattan - High Line - 16,592 Steps - My French Is Terrible


LONG day with Olivier. We met on Roosevelt Island (never been there before), a long, thin residential sliver in the East River. Then took the tram to Manhattan. Then subway to the High Line. Then walk and walk and walk. Then to the Whitney Museum. 

The health app on my iPhone says I took 16,592 steps, probably a one-day record for me. My legs hurt - Olivier is in better shape. I think I'm hot stuff when in France because I can get something to eat or drink, buy something, pay the bill and, on a good day, ask directions in the street. But general conversation with a Frenchman? Non. Olivier's English is equivalent to my French and it was a struggle at times. The noise level of the city didn't help. We tested Google Translate's bandwidth. 

These shots only scratch the surface of what I took yesterday.

Still very great street photography. I like it much.

Wonderful photos. On one of my visits to NY I stayed at a hotel that overlooked that tramway. I saw the little tram cars coming and going. You certainly got a workout yesterday.

The High Line has become one of my favorite places in the City. I visit just about every time I am there.
