The Teen Arts Council, or TAC, is a group of teenagers who are seasonally employed by Friends of the High Line. While working at the High Line, TAC plans, organizes, and creates two teen nights each July and August in the the park's 14th Street Passage. Come meet us at our first event, 90s in NYC, on Thursday, July 17. Read more about us after the jump!

On Thursday, July 18, Friends of the High Line and the High Line Teen Arts Council, welcomed more than 275 teens to the first High Line Teen Night. The theme was “High Line Boardwalk,” and visitors ate cotton candy, danced to summer jams, and tried their luck at carnival games.

Four months in the making, the event was produced entirely by local teens—and they made sure that we all had a blast! Check out more photos from the night after the jump. And mark your calendars for the second High Line Teen Night: Rising Stars, on Thursday, August 15.

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.
