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.

  This week, artist Spencer Finch began to install his site-specific glass work in the High Line's Chelsea Market Passage, a semi-enclosed former loading dock between 15th and 16th Streets.  The piece, entitled
The River That Flows Both Ways, is made up of 700 individual panes of glass, each hued to represent a color of light reflected off the Hudson River.

Metropolismag.com has published an interesting article on a remarkable pair of architect/developers, Della Valle + Bernheimer (DB). Led by the duo of Jared Della Valle and Andrew Bernheimer, they have begun to make their mark on the Chelsea neighborhood by "combining design excellence with the terrors and pleasures of real estate development." DB are responsible for two of the more prominent buildings currently visible from the High Line, 459 West 18th Street and 245 Tenth Avenue, the latter of which can be seen flanking Section 2 of the High Line, still under construction.

We are introducing an exciting new program this summer – the High Line Greeter Program. High Line Greeters will provide valuable services to visitors on the High Line, welcoming them, answering questions, and providing other types of assistance during Opening activities and on limited weekends and weekday evenings.

Becoming a High Line Greeter requires a commitment of at least five three-hour shifts from June-October on the High Line, as well as attending two mandatory Greeter Training sessions.
