Other NYC stuff pt 1

Highline Park - a park built on the former elevated railway line, located between West Village and Chelsea.

Crown Heights in Brooklyn is the central concentration/world HQ of the Chassidic Jewish community. We took a tour with Rabbi Beryl Epstein who explained a lot about the history of and current community in this particular version of the Jewish faith. They are a very open community and were happy for photos to be taken pretty much anywhere.

Tiny prayer boxes were so they could be hidden from the authorities in Nazi Germany
