Friends of the High Line is developing a series of principles for the treatment of the High Line at the rail yards. We strongly urge the MTA to make the following principles a requirement for the selected rail yards developer.  The developers' proposals demonstrate that all of these principles are feasible.  We look forward to working with the selected developer to incorporate these principles in the final development of the site.

A standing-room only crowd packed Cooper Union's Great Hall on Monday night to hear leading architects from the five developer teams present their visions for the Rail Yards. Each team made a 20-minute slide presentation focusing on the design of their proposal. Many were careful to mention that the designs were preliminary and that renderings were merely illustrative of design principles.

The MTA is taking public input for the five developer proposals until December 14. After the designated public comment period, a committee made up of representatives from the MTA and the HYDC will make a recommendation to the MTA Board, who will then be responsible for selecting the developer. This is a very short window of time to make your voice heard, and it's crucial that the agency know the public demands accountability in this process.

You can comment directly to the MTA in one of two ways:
