Philip A. and Lisa Maria Falcone Flyover

Location

Between 25th St. and 27th St.

The Falcone Flyover slowly ramps up off the High Line, rising eight feet above the original structure and carrying visitors through a canopy of magnolias, sassafras, and serviceberry trees. On both sides of the High Line, historic warehouses offer protection from the wind and sun, creating a microclimate in which delicate species of ferns and other woodland groundcovers can thrive. Hovering above the historic railing on the east side of the Falcone Flyover at 26th Street, visitors will find a viewing spur that recalls the billboards that were once attached to the High Line.

Featured Plants

Common snowdrop

Galanthus nivalis

This little bulb is undeterred by freezing temperatures and snow—spotting these white blooms is a great reason to stroll the High Line in winter.

Bigleaf magnolia

Magnolia macrophylla

Visitors often ask about “that tree with huge leaves.” This is one of three magnolia species in our park; it can reach 50 to 65 feet in maturity.

Jack Frost Siberian bugloss

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Jack Frost’

This is one of the few plants that has truly blue flowers. This cultivar’s variegated foliage makes it stand out in shady understory plantings.

White trillium

Trillium grandiflorum

Native to the rich woodlands of the eastern United States, this spring-blooming species is coveted for its large white flowers.
