The new Broadway revival of West Side Story opened to great reviews last week, in no small part due to the steely strength of the supporting cast. Check out the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the back – look familiar?

Please note the new date: this hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 31.

This City Council hearing is an important step in the public review process for the rail yards and, therefore, for the future of the High Line. It  will be a critical opportunity to show the City, State and developer how much public support there is for preserving the High Line at these sites.

The Council has been an ardent supporter of the High Line from the very beginning of our advocacy efforts. By coming to this hearing, you'll galvanize that support and send a clear message to all decision makers in the development process.

Then and now! We're finally witnessing the fruits (flowers) of our labor. These beautiful pictures of an early Spring blooming shrub with fragrant flowers taken by Sierra Bainbridge at Field Operations are just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting Spring on the High Line. More images after the break.

As if we needed another reason to save the High Line at the Rail Yards.

  • Take a pain reliever before going out into the cold...it thins your blood so it flows better when cold.

  • When you ball your hands in your pockets, don't make a full fist. Instead, leave air space so that the warm air generated by your body heat stays trapped in your cupped hand and helps your hands warm faster.

  • Put Vaseline between your toes before putting on your socks and shoes. It helps your toes stay warm!

  • Hats and hoods. Hats and hoods. That one's pretty obvious.

Hat tip to Tim Schenck. Stay warm out there!
