Re: Selling NY - I remember standing on the corner of Bowery & 4th one morning before that tower was built and a broker standing not two feet from me, telling a woman, "This place is perfect for your daughter! Once we clear out the local trash, this will be the best place to live." I regret not kicking him in the teeth.

The High Line is like herpes; it's the gift that keeps on giving. Each time I see it mentioned, I get the feeling that someone, somewhere, regrets those tracks weren't allowed to rust away.

I couldn't believe it. I just stood there in shock. I really, really wish I'd said something.
