Before and after shots of the living room in a converted East Village brownstone. Architect Bill Peterson designed it so the main wall could slide away like a garage door to create a kind of balcony. Nicked from New York magazine.

The Highline

HighlineHighline2

The Highline was supposed to have opened by last September when I was on holiday in NYC.

I’ll defenitely be having a look next time I’m there though – I bet there’s some amazing photos to be had.
