5316Landscaping on the High Line

Before it was turned into a park, the line was in disrepair, although the riveted steel elevated structure was basically sound. Wild grasses, plants, shrubs, and red trees such as sumac grew along most of the route. It was slated for demolition under the administration of New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

In 1999, neighborhood residents Robert Hammond and Joshua David created the community group Friends of the High Line[1] to push the idea of turning the High Line into an elevated park or greenway, similar to the Promenade Plantee in Paris.

In 2004, the New York City government committed $50 million to establish the proposed park. On June 13, 2005, the U.S. Federal Surface Transportation Board issued a certificate of interim trail use, allowing the City to remove most of the line from the national railway system. On April 10, 2006, Mayor Michael Bloomberg presided over a ceremony that marked the beginning of construction. The park is designed by the New York-based landscape firm of James Corner Field Operations, and architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with planting design from Piet Oudolf of the Netherlands and engineering design by Buro Happold.[4] Major backers have included Diane von Furstenberg her husband Barry Diller and her children Alexander von Furstenberg and Tatiana von Furstenberg, and Philip Falcone. Hotel developer Andre Balazs, owner of the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, built the 337-room Standard Hotel straddling the High Line at West 13th Street.[5] The southern section of the High Line park, running from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, opened to the public on June 8, 2009. This southern section includes five stairways and elevators at 14th Street and 16th Street.

The park welcomes visitors with naturalized plantings that are inspired by the self-seeded landscape that grew on the disused tracks[6] and with new, often unexpected views of the city and the Hudson River. Pebble-dash concrete walkways unify the trail, which swells and constricts, swinging from side to side, and divides into concrete tines that meld the hardscape with the planting embedded in railroad gravel mulch. Stretches of track and ties recall the High Line's former use. Most of the planting, which includes 210 species, is of red meadow plants, including clump-forming grasses, liatris and coneflowers, with scattered stands of sumac and smokebush, but not limited to American natives. At the Gansevoort end, a grove of mixed species of birch already provides some dappled shade by late afternoon. Ipe timber for the built-in benches has come from a managed forest certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, to ensure sustainable use, conservation of biological diversity, water resources, and fragile ecosystems.[7]

The park will eventually extend from Gansevoort Street north to 30th Street where the elevated tracks turn west around the Hudson Yards development project[8] to the Javits Convention Center on 34th Street. The northernmost section, from 30th to 34th Streets, is still owned by the CSX railroad company, but the New York City Planning Commission has announced a move toward City ownership of this section.

Mayor Bloomberg noted that the High Line project has helped usher in something of a renaissance in the neighborhood: by 2009, more than 30 projects are planned or under construction nearby.[3]

Viper's Bugloss

Viper's Bugloss


Did you see only bareness in Australian soil
When you laid out your garden, and seeded
It with Bugloss, dreaming of its blueness
In an English drought? Had you read
The great herbalists, who saw it coiled
Like a viper, ready to strike, its bleached,
Bloody stamens in lieu of fangs? Did
A brown snake shoot between your
Stockinged legs as you stood and watched
Them growing? Were they coddled
With watering-cans and little trowels
Expunging weeds? Did you recoil
From the muted greens of gumleaves,
Seeing them as merely grey? Were you
Repelled by their oblong shades, longing
To make your garden a dream of elm
And oak, your heart “in England now”?

You meant well. Today, after bushfires,
Bugloss reclaims the scorched ground,
And horses quaver, dred and stung
By its asp-tongued alkaloids. Bees
Drink its nectar, puke a delicious
Honey: poison on toast, they say. You
Have become a household word:
Mrs Patterson, brewing - with your
Well-meaning, homesick yearning -
The primal, eldest Curse.

Source material: Echium vulgare is known in England as Viper’s Bugloss, a much-welcomed coloniser of bare and infertile soils. Old world herbalists praised it as a cure-all, and adherents of the Doctrine of Signatures saw, in its serpentine curlings and the apparently scaly appearance of its stems, a sure sign that it was an antidote for serpent venom. The plant was inadvertently introduced to the Americas, its seed mixed with cereals - where it is known by its Somerset names of Blueweed, Snake Flower and Viper’s Grass - and instantly became an invasive weed. In Australia, the introduction was more deliberate: Mrs Patterson sowed it in her garden, and then watched with growing horror as it spread like wildfire. The plant contains toxic alkaloids which have a cumulative and devastating effect on farm animals, especially horses. After the 1993 (****) bushfires in Canberra, large numbers of horses had to be destroyed after consuming the weed, which colonised the burnt soil even before the native plants could do so. Even before this calamitous event, I can remember negotiating whole fields of this plant in my childhood walks near the Canberra suburb of Weston. Bees love the plant, and I can testify to the delicious – if somewhat acquired – taste of the honey, which is also reportedly toxic in large quantities. In Australia, the plant is sometimes known as Salvation Jane, on account of the fact that it provides much-needed fodder for farm animals after a fire, but its other, more common appellation documents the tragic results which so often ensue: it is Patterson’s Curse. I have deliberately referenced Claudius in Hamlet and a patriotic poem by Robert Browning. The imagined reference to the brown snake was inspired by a similar incident, beautifully described by W.H. Hudson, which occurred during his own childhood on the Argentinian pampas. See Geoffrey Grigson, The Englishman’s Flora, St. Albans, 1975, p. 308. Poem by Giles Watson, 2009.
