Meatpacking District, Washington Street at Gansevoort

Okay, back to the High Line. This is the entrance at Gansevoort Street. Wait, but first, before getting into the High Line, let's consider The Standard – that gorgeous building looming ahead. You've already seen a long shot of it 3 nights ago.

If you're interested in new architecture, I have some links for you. The New York Times's Nicolai Ouroussouf calls it serious architecture. New York Magazine makes a case for The Standard's "interpreting the spirit" of the Meatpacking District, and then on the next page, you can read an account of what it's like to stay there. Did I forget to mention it's a hotel? Last, go here for a web cam shot that shows it in relation to the High Line, looking down on the High Line. You can also play with their 360° speeded up video.
