High Line supporter Nick Jones recently sent this great aerial shot our way. He tells us it was taken in 1948, and that the aircraft  (from left to right a Stinson SR-10, Grumman Widgeon, and Grumman Goose) are all NYPD planes.

Dreary weather in the city is an opportunity to experience the High Line in an altogether different way. If you're bold enough  to venture up despite the rain, you'll be rewarded with stillness, solitude, and strange beauty as surfaces sparkle and plant colors pop.

Our flickr pool, now well past its infancy and into its chubby adolescence, is a great repository of High Line visitor photos. It's a fun browse, but it needs your help to grow big and strong.

If you're on flickr, please take a moment to add your best High Line shots to our pool. You'll be glad you helped  expand the prettiest little corner of the internet.

Night on the High LineImage Courtesy of Katie Sokoler.
 

Katie Sokoler over at Gothamist took some amazing night shots of the High Line a few weeks ago. Though the Line makes for a great stroll or hangout during the day, it becomes an altogether different experience by night. For those of you who haven't checked it out after dark yet, these pictures are worth a look.

Also be sure to check out the ever-evolving, ever-amazing High Line flickr pool to see more photos and to add your own.

We've created a brand-new Flickr Group, and it's looking a little lonely. We need YOU to cheer up our Pool by adding photos of your High Line visit!

Back in March we gave you a taste of the young flora growing up on the High Line. As we anxiously await both the Summer season (which should be here any day now) and the impending High Line opening (same), we thought we'd share some pictures, courtesy of Ashley Burke, of other plants and flowers that have grown since.

Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn'

Then and now! We're finally witnessing the fruits (flowers) of our labor. These beautiful pictures of an early Spring blooming shrub with fragrant flowers taken by Sierra Bainbridge at Field Operations are just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting Spring on the High Line.
