On Wednesday, September 29, Friends of the High Line presented Autumn Crossing, a free open-air performance by dance artist Naomi Goldberg Haas, her dance company, Dances For A Variable Population, and senior citizens from Hudson Guild, a multi-service agency that provides programs and services to seniors and other residents of the Chelsea community.
In the early spring, the High Line gardeners cut back the previous growing season's perennials and grasses to make room for new growth. The entire process is called High Line Green-Up, and it takes place every year as soon as the temperature starts to warm up.
In spring, 2011, the second section of the High Line, from West 20th to West 30th Street, will open to the public, doubling the length of the park.
Section 2 has new design features, including the High Line's first lawn, a steel walkway that rises 8 feet above the High Line level, and a wildflower field, among others.
