High Line Teen Picks main image

We surveyed community members living near the High Line last year, and many teens expressed interest in attending film screenings at the park. So this year, we’ve recruited local teens to help us curate and coordinate an entire series of free summer movies.

The series is called High Line Teen Picks, and it begins on Thursday, August 2 with an audience choice. Follow us after the jump to help us decide which movie – Step Up or The Notebook – should kick off the series.

The compass plant is a member of the sunflower family that gets its name from its unique alignment to cardinal directions.
 

The High Line’s planting design is inspired by the self-seeded landscape that grew up between rail tracks after the trains stopped running in the 1980s. Today, the High Line includes more than 300 species of perennials, grasses, shrubs, and trees — chosen for their hardiness, adaptability, diversity, and seasonal variation in color and texture. Some of the species that originally grew on the High Line’s rail bed are reflected in the park landscape today.

This week we share with you one of our gardeners’ current favorites.

With more than 1,500 contributors, the High Line Flickr Pool gathers some of the best photographs of the park. The images are displayed in a rotating gallery on our Web site, giving High Line fans from afar, or those stuck in the office, a great way to keep track of park life. On the blog, we like to recognize the talented photographers who share their unique perspectives of the park.

Summer is an exciting season at the High Line. It marks the return of some of our favorite public programs for all ages, High Line food partners serving up a selection of sweet and savory options along the park, not to mention a diverse and ever-changing palette of flowers and foliage throughout the planting beds.

Join us after the jump for a photographic celebration of the summer season featuring our favorite images from past and present, including many from the High Line Flickr Pool.
