The section of the High Line between 30th St. & 11th Ave. & 34th St. & 12th Ave. is currently closed as crews clear snow and ice from the park's pathways. Please check back or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.

Subsoil Delivery

In preparation for the arrival of plants later this fall, a layer of subsoil has just been delivered to the High Line above 19th Street. This soil, part of the High Line's layered Living Roof system, will serve as a base for the topsoil in which plants will eventually grow. Subsoil is coarser and typically contains more clay than the finer, more nutrient-rich topsoil.

Once both layers of soil are in place in the planting beds, they will be covered over to keep them from blowing away before plants are ready.
