REMINDER: SAVE THE HIGH LINE AT THE RAIL YARDS ON MARCH 31




We hope you can join us for this important City Council hearing on the West Side Rail Yards. The hearing will be a pivotal opportunity to publicly show your support for saving the High Line at the rail yards. At this stage in the public approval process, it's crucial that we communicate to the City, State and developer that plans for the site must include the entire historic High Line.

The City Council has long been supportive of the High Line. A strong showing on March 31 will show how much High Line supporters appreciate the Council's leadership, and will communicate the importance of their continued support.

THE HIGH LINE IN BLOOM

Viburnum x bodnantense 'Dawn', a fragrant viburnum, blooms in the Gansevoort Woodland.


The spring-blooming crocus Crocus tomasinianus lends its lavender color to a planting bed near 18th Street.


Sunburst witchhazel (Hamamelis x intermedia) blooms near West 13th Street.


The first signs of spring have arrived on the High Line, as a few species have begun to bloom in the otherwise wintery landscape of Section 1. The plants that make up the High Line's landscape were chosen, among other reasons, for their diversity in bloom schedule. With perennials, trees, and shrubs blooming from early March to mid-November, the High Line will be a constantly-changing landscape of color and texture throughout the seasons.
