Thanksgiving at the High Line. Photo by Auzelle Epeneter.
 

Yesterday, the High Line staff celebrated Thanksgiving early with a farewell potluck in honor of our seasonal staff (a sample of the myriad of delicious dishes is pictured above).  High Line gardeners Au'brey Gill, Meg Graham, and Maryanne Stubbs will part from us during the dormant winter months.

The new 14th Street elevator is now open (and beautiful).  Next time you visit the High Line, give it a try--you'll be transported from street level to High Line level by way of a vivid yellow-green car. It's just to the West of the High Line stairs on 14th Street.

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.

If you've visited the High Line recently, you've probably noticed planting areas marked with red and blue flags.  We've been getting a lot of questions about them.  Their purpose is simple – not for marking pesticides; not for quarantine; not for targeting removal – we're doing an inventory.

If the 5:00 darkness is making you want to crawl into bed until April, it may be time for a walk on the High Line, where the colorful blooms and fall foliage are still going strong!

flowersRescued American Woodcock.
 

This fancy bird, a migratory American Woodcock, was rescued by High Line gardener and bird enthusiast Maryanne on Friday. It was found huddled in a doorway on West 20th Street, stunned but not visibly injured -- she guessed the little guy had flown into the side of a building and had been knocked to the ground.
