Street Roses in New York City

17 years ago

New York City sometimes does things right. When they finally finished replacing the West Side Highway in midtown, about 7 years ago, they planted roses in some of the dividers. While they look a little messy in the winter when windblown garbage gets caught in them, most of the year they look good and right now they are stunning. It's a pleasure to sit in traffic down there at the moment.

There are a couple different ones; can anybody ID this one? I know there isn't a much detail as I should have, I took the pictures out the car window waiting for the left turn signal at 50th street. They shear them back once a year, but that's about all the care I see them get.
