Hudson Yards – Theme Week: New York City (3/7)

Hudson Yards

The logistical challenge big cities pose is fascinating. On the one hand, it is good to have everyone concentrated together. On the other, it creates logistical challenges due to crowding and lack of space. Anyone who has commuted to Manhattan has experienced this challenge first hand. I took this picture from the High Line, an excellent public park on former elevated rail tracks looking down at Hudson Yards. Seeing this many trains at once in Manhattan is an interesting site.

I liked this picture because of the lines. The trains and train tracks form horizontal lines that are paralleled by the convention center building above. The street lights, bridge, and skyscrapers form perpendicular vertical lines. I converted to B&W to focus on the lines and not the colors.
