If you're a developer waiting to erect a luxury condo tower along the High Line, what do you do in the meantime with the unsightly gas station you plan to demolish?
First, you plant some hedges around it. But that just isn't good enough. What's better is a rolling, green, suburban-style lawn with a white fence around it.
B.H. Grossman sent in these shots of the Lukoil station on 10th Avenue and High Line, slated to become "an art-themed, mixed-use condo and retail development" by Michael Shvo.
The texting preppie on the Citibike just brings it all together, like some fever dream of a futuristic Mayberry, U.S.A.
Update: Our friend Tricia writes, she was walking by and: "A retired cop dressed like a museum guard explained it was going to have sculptures of sheep on the 17th, for a month." Sheep!
