Story Behind the Painting

This scene is of the Chelsea neighborhood of New York from my friend's apartment rooftop on 27th and 10th Streets. I love the quilted color variety of Manhattan and the vibrancy of each neighborhood all so close together (at least compared to the city of Chicago which feels much more spread out and grey in color to me).

This painting features a residential building, Port 10, and the new conservation High Line elevated walking trail in the foreground. The Freedom Tower in the distance to the far right.
