Don't miss the Target High Line Street Festival, our free celebration of the High Line's opening season, taking place this Sunday and generously sponsored by Target.

From 12:00 Noon to 5:00 PM, we'll take over Gansevoort Street between Ninth Avenue and Washington Street, in the Meatpacking District.

Come marvel at the World's Largest Lemonade Stand – in a 1,300 gallon custom-built Rosenwach water tank. The event will also feature inflatable sculptures, a reincarnation of the West Side Cowboy from the Federation of Black Cowboys, body painting, and performances by the Hungry March Band, Zona Del Barrio, and Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, among many others.

We need your support tomorrow at the Community Board 4 public forum on the Western Rail Yards. Even as we open the first section of the High Line as a public park today, one-third of the structure still has an uncertain future, and may be partially demolished. Come help us show the City, developer and the MTA that the preservation of the entire historic High Line must be made a priority at the Rail Yards.

This weekend, children's author and illustrator Peter Brown will read from his new book, The Curious Garden. The book, published this month by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers was inspired by the wild, self-seeded landscape the author encountered on a visit the High Line. From the press release:

Local wine shop Chelsea Wine Vault is holding a couple of tastings over the next few weeks, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Friends of the High Line.  The first event is tomorrow evening from 7:00-9:00PM at their store in Chelsea Market.  The wines featured tomorrow-- over 20 from around the world-- will be bright, juicy, crisp, and mouth-watering, perfect for a spring evening.

... And so can you! There are still a few spots remaining for the remaining Sketching the High Line classes with artist Ann DeVere.

Last Saturday was the first class, and it was a really wonderful experience. Ann led us through a series of warm-up exercises to get our creative juices flowing, and then we sat for few longer sketches, observing and recording the unique viewpoint we had of the High Line and its surroundings.

Don't miss this great opportunity!
