Free Teen Night on July 18, 2013Our Teen Arts Council has been hard at work planning our first Teen Night. Photo by Beverly Israely
 

Friends of the High Line is excited to present its first ever Teen Night this Thursday, July 18, at 6:00 PM in the 14th Street Passage. This boardwalk-themed evening is the first of two fun events planned by our very own Teen Arts Council, or TAC.

Our TAC team is a group of ten local teens we’ve hired to plan two awesome party nights for New York City teens this summer. For the past five months they have met on a weekly basis—attending other teen events around the city and meeting with other teen groups in preparation of producing their own event. And the night has finally arrived!

This Thursday’s event, High Line Boardwalk, will include carnival games, tasty treat, great music by DJ empanadamn, and even some fortune telling.

Whether you want to challenge yourself at the dunk tank, dance into the evening, leave with some hard-earned prizes, or enjoy the tasty, free food, just make sure not to miss this fun event. High Line Boardwalk will begin at 6:00 PM and ends at 9:30 PM.

If you’d like to make a music request, please share it on the Facebook event page.

This special blog post comes to you from Ana Nicole Rodriguez, a High Line neighbor who grew up in West Chelsea and now works as an editorial intern for Food Arts Magazine. We invited Nicole to join us last weekend to document the second annual Social Soup Experiment on the High Line, an event presented by Friends of the High Line as part of High Line Food, a program that brings interesting, sustainable food to the High Line.

What is a park if not a space in which to bring people together?

That community sentiment, along with a focus on seasonality and local food sourcing, is precisely what inspired this year’s Social Soup Experiment. Dining need not exceed the simplicity of wholesome ingredients and smiling faces. A large spoon, two long wooden tables decorated with apples, and a group of more than 250 hungry neighbors is all you need to make the High Line’s “restaurant without walls” possible.

Friends of the High Line partnered with Brooklyn Grange Farm to bring in beekeepers from the five boroughs for the first-ever Honey Day at the High Line.

Yesterday, a full afternoon of activities included an extra-special Play With Your Food session with La Newyorkina, an educational beehive, special Honey Day-themed treats from High Line Food vendors, and honey tastings from beekeepers from the five boroughs.

Join us after the jump for more photos from the event.

We hope you’ll join us for our annual Summer Party on the High Line presented by Coach   it’s a great way to have fun and support the ongoing maintenance and operations of the park at the same time.

What happens when hundreds of people gather for a one-pot meal at a communal table in a restaurant without walls placed on the High Line?

Why, they eat of course!

Despite heavy winds and ominous clouds on the horizon, nine dancers from the Trisha Brown Dance Company stepped into place on rooftops along the southern terminus of the High Line on Thursday evening. The dancers were preparing for their 7:00 PM performance — the debut of Roof Piece — a dance originally performed by the company in SoHo in 1971, and recreated on its 40th anniversary for the High Line. As the dancers prepared to begin, park visitors gathered along the High Line between Gansevoort and West 14th Streets. Some had come to see the performance, and others had stumbled upon it.
