This past April, High Line horticultural staff, volunteers, and teens in our Green Corps program helped local gardener Tari Stubblefield restore a garden at the Fulton Houses in Chelsea. The initiative, called Neighbor Day, was a partnership between Friends of the High Line, Fulton Houses Tenant Association President Miguel Acevedo, and the NYCHA Gardening & Sustainability Unit.

We are pleased to welcome the Homeless Museum of Art to the High Line.

The museum, also called HoMu for short, is an performance created by New York-based artist Filip Noterdaeme. Since its inception in 2002, the work has existed in a state of perpetual flux. It has been a live-in museum in a rented apartment; an activist's initiative; an exhibit in a vacant artist studio; a collection of original artworks; and a mock museum booth embedded in a commercial art fair.

High Line visitors are often surprised to see smiling faces gazing back at them, and even waving, from the windows of neighboring buildings toward the northern terminus of the park. After the initial double-take, it’s easy to realize that these amusing locals are not flesh-and-blood people, but rather a playful ruse.

First David Beckham showed us his underwear. Then the Armani chicks flaunted their sexy bodies in bathing suits. Earlier this month, Larry Flynt got in on the action. And now Charlie’s Angels are taking it over.
