About 30th street (16 blocks north from where we started), the High Line turns west and heads to the Hudson River, with New Jersey across the way.

Warm again, we head out into the winter weather for our walk back to Times Square, stopping for a minute at Babbo Restaurant near Washington Square Park to beg for a reservation and they tell us to come back early and try for a seat at the bar (good advice, as we'll see in a few hours, we've been trying to get into Babbo for years, but could never get a reservation). As we continue toward Times Square, we run across a real treat, someone playing a piano in the middle of Washington Square Park, next to Babbo and Otto Enoteca.

And, we continue "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" (no snow, but it is really cold).
