It’s a busy time of year for our operations staff – custodians, rangers, maintenance crew, and gardeners all chip in to help clear snow and ice as quickly as possible so the park can open to the public following winter storms. The result is a wintertime treat for visitors willing to brave the elements: the natural beauty of our winter gardens is augmented by snowfall. Snow catches in dried seed-heads, ice clusters cling to grasses, and High Line Art installations are dusted with a light powder of snowflakes.
One of our High Line Photographers, Oliver Rich, captured these beautiful moments this past weekend. On the left, a staff member pushes a snow broom along the walkway to clear it as snow continues to fall. On the right, snow settles along the High Line’s historic Art Deco railings.
To see more of Oliver’s snow photos and the work of our other talented High Line Photographers visit the High Line Flickr Pool.
Winter hours on the High Line are 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, including during the holiday season, but stay tuned to @highlinenyc on Twitter during inclement weather for updates.
