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.

The High Line is a great place to take photographs. Whether you’re a horticulture enthusiast focusing on blooms, an architecture fan capturing the cityscape, or an art-lover photographing the art on and around the High Line – there’s a little something for everyone. The light, the views, the people, and the unique landscape offer a wide variety of opportunities for amateur and professional photographers alike.

Beverly Israely is a long-time resident of the West Village and High Line Member, and she was also one of the High Line’s first visitors after it opened as a public park. “I’ve lived here since 1996, and I had heard all about the efforts to save the structure and make it into a park,” Beverly recalls. “Our family came up on a rainy morning in June, not long after the High Line opened, and I was so inspired by how the space had been transformed. Since then, the park has become one of my family’s favorite neighborhood places. You’ll find us here often – walking, picnicking, relaxing on the lounge chairs, and attending performances and kids' events. We are so happy to share this treasure and support Friends of the High Line and the many members of our community who are dedicated to sustaining the High Line as a special place for New Yorkers.”

Join us after a jump for a glimpse at some of Beverly’s favorite parts of the High Line.

Dancing to the rhythms of Juan Morales and Sonido Costeño during ¡Arriba! Photo by Liz Ligon
 

This summer, you will find some of New York City’s best Latin bands at the High Line. It is all part of ¡Arriba! – our series of free, community dance parties, presented in partnership with HAI and Hudson Guild and supported by MetLife Foundation.

Last week more than 400 people danced to the salsa and merengue rhythms by Juan Morales and Sonido Costeño. We would like to thank everyone for joining us, and congratulate our raffle prize winners, Dennisse and Martin, who went home with our newly-designed High Line tote bags, and Rosa, who picked up a $75 gift certificate to Terroir at The Porch.

This is the first season that you can enjoy both sweet and savory food offerings at the High Line.

To celebrate the moments made possible by delicious food, great company, and a one-of-a-kind public space, we asked you to share your photos with us on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #shareameal.

The winner in July was Rhesa Storms, who took an adorable photo of her young friend peering over the edge of Melt Bakery’s cart on the High Line.
