The High Line has won all sorts of fancy awards, but whoever thought it would get one for public imbibing? According to a tabloid we don’t like to link to, the most amount of tickets related to illegal drinking in all of New York City’s parks, were issued at the multimillion dollar, high brow structure.
However, the people cited weren’t your Wild Irish Rose and malt liquor-brown paper bagged types, they were the romantic kind who “get lulled into a magical place where they think they don’t have to abide by the law,” according to NYC Parks Advocates’ Geoffrey Croft. We know that place very well. (Photo: notladj/flickr)
