The High Line’s landscape was created in partnership with Netherlands-based planting designer Piet Oudolf. For inspiration, Oudolf looked to the existing landscape that grew on the High Line after the trains stopped running. The plant selection favors native, drought-tolerant, and low-maintenance species, cutting down on the resources that go into the landscape. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.
It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.
