The High Line transformed from a derelict structure to one of New York's beloved public spaces. Friends of the High Line, the non-profit conservancy, began this journey fifteen years ago along with a group of visionary community members, City officials, designers, and steadfast supporters.
Friends of the High Line works to build and maintain an extraordinary public space on the High Line. We seek to protect the entire historic structure, transforming an essential piece of New York's industrial past and inspiring new ways of thinking about the city, parks, public space, preservation, and community.learn more
Founded by two neighborhood residents, Friends of the High Line always seeks to engage the vibrant and diverse community on and around the High Line, offering a dynamic great public place for all New Yorkers and visitors to enjoy.learn more
Each year, Friends of the High Line creates and produces over 400 free, innovative experiences for people of all ages.
