The High Line at the Rail Yards, between 11th Avenue and 34th Street, will be closed through Monday, May 11, 2015, for repairs to the Interim Walkway. Thank you for your patience.

Snowy Night



All the snow we've had lately has made us see the High Line's landscape in a new way. Drifting snow changes the shape of the planting beds and pathways. The monochromatic palate of the landscape makes the skeletal forms of grasses, trees and other landscape elements really pop. Railroad tracks retain heat and melt through the snow while the white blanket covers the rest of the beds.

One of our favorite surprises has been the way L'Observatoire's lighting elements interact with the falling snow. Patrick Cullina, our Vice President of Horticulture and Park Operations, shot some footage of snow falling at night. We encourage you to come up on a snowy night to see for yourself -- with 2 to 5 inches expected by the end of the day, tonight might be the night.
