Next on the High Line
Eight years after the first section of the park opened, visitors can now walk the entire length of the High Line from it’s southern most point in the Meatpacking District all the way to 34th Street. The High Line, however, is far from finished. Hear how horticulture on the High Line continues to evolve with changing environments, changing neighborhoods and a maturing landscape, and get a preview of the new section of the park currently under construction.
Andi Pettis is the Director of Horticulture at Friends of the High Line, where she is responsible for the team of gardeners who care for and maintain the more than 110,000 plants on the High Line. Her horticulture experience in New York City spans 17 years, including work in private gardens and rooftops, public parks, and botanical gardens including the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and teaching at the New York Botanical Garden.
