Highline Park and walking around Chelsea

Last saturday, I finally got to check out the Highline Park with my sis and Nik. It was a really nice day out and it was surprisingly, not too crowded. My inner macro-geek got the best of me with all the pretty flowers everywhere and it was quite nice to be surrounded with a patch of nature among the buildings and concrete. LOVE the design of these gardens so so much!

Afterwards, we walked around Chelsea for a bit. I like to check out the graffiti, and I was hopeful that some of the smaller galleries would be open, but no luck on that front.

We happened upon this amaaaazing window farm in a window of a gallery. I tried really hard to capture a picture of it, but the reflections were really working against me here. Check out their website though! It was a vertical hydroponic garden! There were even little peppers growing! I was blown away, to say the least.
