High Line Cutback

Contrary to common practices, the High Line’s plants are not trimmed back during the fall season when the cold weather arrives. Because the park needs to keep its charm during winter, the layers of wild grasses and self-seeded plants that have grown between the rail tracks since the trains stopped running in the 1980's are left there until spring.

High Line Gardeners startedlast week to cut back the park’s plants to make room for new growth; the promenade offers now - but not for long - a completely different ambiance, that accentuates even more the old rail tracks that I like so much.
