Photo Credir: HWKN, Friends of the High Line and UNIQLO.

I am remiss for neglecting you my loyal readers. I hope that in the midst of my silence you've found some exciting NYC events of your own. One of my favorite developments has been the opening of the 2nd section of the Highline, which is drawing attention and traffic to a long neglected far west side between 23rd & 30th Streets.

If you've already made a visit to section 2, you have undoubtedly seen or visited The Lot, located under the 30th St. Highline entrance. This welcomed outdoor social space is serving up some delicious libations by way of Colicchio and Sons (draft beers & wines) and has food offerings from some of the hottest food trucks around, including Taim Falafel (best I've had).

Starting next Thursday, July 28th, the space adjoined to The Lot (and currently occupied by some freaky looking AOL balloons) will be converted to a Roller Rink by Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo. Admission, which includes skate rental, will be $12 for Adults and $10 for kids under 13. [Via ny.racked.com]

If you don't want to shell out the money it may still be worth checking out for the people watching alone!
