If one were ever to doubt the power of a garden or green space, you only need to spend the afternoon with the High Line to understand the need for such places. The energy in New York is palpable. The energy is fast, exciting, throngs of people, and a constant hum of go-go-go permeates the streets. But there are places where the energy shifts to rejuvenating, energizing and relaxing all at once. The High Line is such a place.All gardens, the High Line included, are great equalizers. When you are in a garden space you are no longer a executive, model, writer, student, retired teacher or homeless man. You are simply a person, a human being, enjoying time with nature and the company of others. We all have the same paths to walk, benches to rest our weary bodies on, views of the city and sky above and sun on our shoulders. In a garden we are one.
