Stop by the High Line in the coming weeks, and you will find a remarkable transformation underway.

High Line Gardeners are busily working with more than 300 community volunteers to complete High Line Spring Cutback – our biggest horticultural task of the year. The High Line’s plants are not trimmed back at the onset of the cold weather, as is typical in most gardens. Instead, the wild grasses, skeletal plant stalks, and dried seed heads define the High Line’s winter landscape. Now that spring has arrived, we must work quickly to cut back the plants to make way for new growth.

Beginning Sunday, April 1, the High Line will be open daily from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Spring hours will continue through the end of May.

Please check back or follow the High Line on Twitter for the latest information and operational updates.

Join us tonight for the kick off of the second installment of HIGH LINE CHANNEL, featuring daily screenings of Selected Recent Works by experimental filmmaker Jennifer West. West works with “direct film,” or film realized without the use of a camera. She exposes the film strip to a variety of substances, such as coffee, mascara, and habanero sauce, or by staging interactive events where people perform actions to the film strip, like snowboarding or skateboarding directly on it. The results are vibrant, abstract short films. Learn more

Selected Recent Works will be on view daily from dusk to 10:00 PM through Monday, March 5. The films are viewable from the Seating Steps on the High Line during normal operating hours, and also from the sidewalk along West 22nd Street below the park.
