Manhattan’s new hotspot is home to cutting-edge art and architecture, including the highest sky deck in the Western hemisphere

1 THE HIGH LINE

Hudson Yards is the name given to a new US$25 billion real estate project on the west side of Manhattan, between 30th and 34th Streets. There are many ways you can approach it, depending on where you are staying. One possibility is via the High Line, a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side, which was saved from demolition and first opened in 2009. It runs from 14th to 34th Street. Get off at 30th Street next to Hudson Yards and the Shed culture space, which showcases the arts across all disciplines. The High Line also has lots of commissioned art to get you in the mood. thehighline.org

2 THE SHED

Opened last year, this new cultural centre and arts complex was designed by lead architect Diller Scofidio and Renfro, and collaborating architect the Rockwell Group. It has a roof that can be wheeled out over part of the plaza in front of it, although it’s hard to imagine when you are looking at it, which is why most people watch a video on their phones to see it in action (dsrny.com/project/the-shed).

Papi's Sign

“I saw a butterfly,” my mother said with a shy smile. It was the first time I’d seen her smile since my father’s death the week before. After a seven-year period of steadily declining health, he’d passed away in his bed at home, surrounded by his wife and three daughters. It was a peaceful end to his suffering, but saying goodbye was still difficult. We all missed him terribly. Especially Mami.
