High Line at the Rail Yards
The High Line at the Rail Yards is the third and northernmost section of the elevated railway. Located between West 30th and West 34th Streets to the south and north, and 10th and 12th Avenues to the east and west, this section extends one half mile beyond the northern terminus of the park, at West 30th Street.
Friends of the High Line is working with the City of New York, under the leadership of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, to open the High Line at the Rail Yards as public open space. Construction is underway on the first phase of the project, and when it opens in 2014, the High Line park will extend to West 34th Street, connecting the Meatpacking District and West Chelsea with the future No. 7 subway station, the Javits Center, and the future Hudson Yards neighborhood.

SUPPORT THE HIGH LINE
Construction of the High Line at the Rail Yards is made possible by the visionary donors to the Campaign for the High Line. Friends of the High Line launched this comprehensive fundraising effort to support not only work on the High Line at the Rail Yards, but also the construction of High Line Headquarters, capital repairs of the High Line, and the endowment. Securing the long-term financial stability of the High Line with a strong endowment will ensure continued excellence in park maintenance, operations, and programming for future generations to enjoy.
Join Friends of the High Line, or donate today to help keep the park thriving. Your support will help Friends of the High Line prepare to welcome visitors to the High Line at the Rail Yards in 2014. Each year, Friends of the High Line must raise funding to pay for more than 90% of the park’s annual operating budget, and support from members allows the non-profit organization to employ gardeners to tend the plants, custodians to keep the park clean, educators to lead kids activities, and much more.
