Enlargebird skeleton

I was cleaning out photos on my cell phone and found this picture of a bird skeleton on the balast at the rail yards.

Actually, there are few pigeons, and virtually no rats or mice on the High Line. The reason? There are no people up there to feed them garbage.

  On Monday night, we were invited to the most exclusive of West Chelsea events: a FLOR-laying party in our new office on 20th Street.

In preparation for our move this weekend from our cramped quarters on 14th Street to our new palatial digs, we covered the bare concrete with squares of the "modern, modular" carpet in a soothing, short-pile gray.

Last week, a group of twenty Tiffany & Co. employees removed their jewelry and donned gardening gloves to clean up trash on the rail yards section of the High Line in anticipation of our High Line sketching classes which starts this weekend.  The employees are all part of TIffany 's TeamBuilders Manhattan, a group of staffers that get together for volunteer projects and social activities.  Departments from across the company were represented, including the corporate office and the Wall Street and Fifth Avenue retail stores.  The all-female crew broke up into three smaller groups and tackled different sections of the High Line between 30th-34th Street, filling nearly 25 bags with trash in just an hour and a half.  The bags were then removed by a Parks Department sanitation team.
