THE HIGH LINE
This is a garden created in the heart of busy New York City resting about 20 feet above ground. It winds its way through many streets and blocks, north to south, close to the Hudson River. It is a garden intended for strolling and seeing Nature in all of its beauty – even in its fall decay. It is a garden for people, too. There are many places for sitting and gathering so you can watch the plants OR the people. I visited the garden in October 2015, so while there were still leaves on the trees and a few perennials in bloom, the blooming grasses were the major stars accompanied by the seed heads of spent perennials. We began our stroll at the south end late in the afternoon and ended at the north end after dark, so I was able to see how the garden was lit at night. It is a spectacular garden and one that is obviously well-loved by the people of NYC.
