"Betten on the High Line"

Within the last year, New York City’s High Line — a huge public park atop an elevated rail structure —  has evolved into one of the city’s most intriguing open-air galleries.  Stretching from Manhattan’s Meatpacking District to Midtown, it features views of an eclectic range of both commissioned and unsanctioned pieces.  Here are a few images recently captured:
