Thanks to all who came out to last night’s Summer Party on the High Line presented by Coach.

The event brought together the High Line and Coach – two iconic New York institutions that represent the creative energy of the city – to celebrate the spirit of summer with a carnival-inspired event. This year’s Summer Party featured a fortune teller, boardwalk games, carnival prizes from Coach, delicious food and drink at sunset, and dancing into the night with DJ Kiss.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Coach for presenting this event. Thanks to its generous underwriting, 100 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales are going directly toward the High Line, helping us keep the park clean, the plants beautiful, and the public engaged through free art, tours, talks, and kids activities all year long.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Tom Colicchio, Chef/Owner of Colicchio & Sons, and the talented chefs from the restaurants along the High Line who participated in this year's High Line Chefs Dinner.

The High Line Chefs Dinner is an annual special event that helps raise crucial funding to support the ongoing maintenance and operations of the High Line. This year's event took place on Sunday, October 23. The evening began on the High Line, where guests enjoyed sunset cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The festivities then moved off the High Line to Colicchio & Sons, where more than 250 guests enjoyed cocktails and innovative small plates during a walk-around dinner.


Yesterday, Jeff and I had the honor of judging the Second Annual High Line Design Competition at the Lab School in Chelsea.  The competition is the culmination of a multi-week geometry unit in two of Ms. Rodriguez and Ms. Whelan's math and science classes that uses the High Line as a model for teaching the students about scale, ratio, and area.  All of the student's designs for the High Line had to be to scale, incorporate native plants and grasses, and honor High Line planning principals.
