Arlene from Chelsea
(44/100 Strangers) Arlene was the most delightful person I spoke to during my visit on the Highline. While she confessed her position at the Met (or was it Natural History?) keeps her talkative, we spend a majority of our conversation speaking about The Highline, and it's comparison to the Plazas and Promanade's of Europe. She also had many things to say about the area, and the community of 21st Street in Particular. She told me that most people in the area have dogs, and so don't make it up to the Highline much. Arelene was also eager to try different things, although she confessed she doesn't like posing. We did some shots through a crowd, which she really liked the idea of. I got so caught up in conversation, that I regret not taking a few more pictures, particularly through the crowd. I've posted one of those as well, but I wanted to include this warm shot of her, one of the earliest in our encounter.
