On the High Line

The Empire State Building was the star of the show Sunday morning on the High Line.

Although most visitors seemed much more interested in the new architecture (“You can look right into their bedroom!”) than the plants, the plants in bloom this late summer-early fall season included many interesting grasses and late-flowering perennials. Prarie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) and Mexican feathergrass (Nasella tenuissima) are standouts, as well as smokebushes, goldenrods, coriopsis, asters, and echinacea.

Visit the High Line Events Page for information on all kinds of interesting things coming up this season.
