High Line park- West Side, NYC

The High Line has to one of the most enjoyable parks. Three years ago when I was in Chelsea staying at a friends, the only things at the current location were the elevated rails. The rust eaten iron work was the remnant of a time gone by. The area wasn’t the nicest to walk in. This site has some really classic photos from the day.

Last year when my wife came back to Miami from visiting that same friend. She had a wealth of interesting photos to show, a slew of them from the High Line.

This past weekend we went up again, stayed with the same friend and made it requirement to see the High Line.

All in a row…….

I thought that getting parts cut using CAD dwg files was a cool thing. I found out recently that it really makes a difference what you feed your CAD file into. For example, these parts used to be cut using an oxygen fuel cutting process. The heat transfer caused deformation that made welding a time consuming process. These parts on the other hand were laser cut, a process that transfers very little heat. The parts for these sticks are almost exactly the same and it made welding 65% faster.

Whoa it’s almost February………………………
