Last week, we bid farewell to Lauren Ross, our Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Curator & Director of Arts Programs. When Lauren first came to us in 2009, we were in the final stages of construction on the first section of the High Line, and Creative Time was helping us install our first public art installation: A River That Flows Both Ways by Spencer Finch.

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.

If you had to describe the High Line with music, how would it sound?

If you have visited the High Line this week, you may have noticed a peculiar new addition: there's a mobile home parked on Gansevoort Plaza, under the High Line at Gansevoort and Washington Streets.

Sometimes it seems like every street in New York City has one or two buildings with scaffolding bridging the sidewalk.

Sure, those boxy, plywood scaffolds and sidewalk sheds are there to protect pedestrians from overhead construction or dangerous facades, but they can be an eyesore.
