W 9 Street Doors

I like the lamps too on these Greenwich Village doors on West 9th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue.

High Line Plants 1 of 2

There are birds there too. We saw a kestral eating a sparrow, mocking birds, song sparrows, and a common yellow-throat warbler.

Roses

There is a playground/ballfield accross the street that has benches at one end. The rose bushes there are in full blom and smell lovely. The High Line has roses too.

Ted

For Memorial Day I honor my dad, Cdr. Theodore (Ted) Hechler, who was at Pearl Harbor during the bombing. His next a tour of duty was in the Pacific. He met my mother in Perth, Australia. She became the first war bride. He later flew PBY’s for the Navy in the Caribbean. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
