High Line at the Rail Yards in Catfish

Enlarge

The latest on Section 3 of the High Line: a cameo in the new film, Catfish, now in theatres.

Catfish—both a documentary and a mystery—follows the long-distance friendship between Yaniv Schulman, a photographer in New York City, and Abby, an eight-year-old fan in suburban Michigan.

The film begins with Abby's discovery of one of Schulman's photographs in the New York Sun, published alongside Erica Orden's review of the film, NYExport: Opus Jazz. The photograph, which captures a beautiful point in "Passage for Two," (the scene from Opus Jazz that was filmed on the High Line at the Rail Yards) inspires Abby to create a painting and send it to Schulman.

We'll be good sports and let you discover the rest of Catfish yourself, but we will say this: Opus Jazz and the High Line at the Rail Yards continue to inspire.
