Day 209 - The High Line and MOMA.

The High Line is an old elevated freight train line that ran the length of the lower and middle west side.  Long abandoned, sections of it were converted to a long overhead walking park.  Full of trees and plants, the walkways are beautifully landscaped.  The place was packed with locals and tourists. The entire park is about 2 miles long.  We started at the Whitney Museum end and walked all the way up to the convention center at 35th Street.  From there we wandered into Times Square as we worked our way over to MOMA.  The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.  We were hoping to see a large Wharhol collection.

The MOMA was as crowded as the others and it took us a while to get up to the sixth floor to view the permanent collections.  The Picaso, Degas, Renoir, and Cezanne pieces were a wonderful surprise.  The Van Goh was spectacular.
