Dear Friends,

2009 has been a remarkable year for the High Line. After spending the spring working on the final stages of construction, we opened the first section of the park in June. Since then, we estimate that nearly 2 million people have visited. We hope you were among these first visitors to the High Line, and that you return again and again in 2010.

The High Line's first year as a public park has been truly amazing. We've pulled together some of our favorite pictures from this incredible, historic year. We hope you enjoy them!

We hope you'll continue to support the High Line as we prepare for 2010.

Many thanks, and happy New Year,

Park visitors stroll and relax on the Diller von Furstenberg Sundeck between 14th and 15th Streets. The Sundeck is one of the High Line's most popular gathering spots, especially for sunbathers on bright summer days, and as a place to watch the sunset. Photo by Iwan Baan

"...The High Line is a hit, and not just with tourists but with New Yorkers who are openly relishing a place where they can reflect and relax enough to get a new perspective on Manhattan."
– Diane Cardwell, For High Line Visitors, Park is a Railway Out of Manhattan, New York Times

Excuse the re-post, but I consider it my duty to make sure everyone watches this at least once. This little gem of a music video was shot by Art of Noise on the High Line in 1984.

Here's a video from UK-based Wallpaper, featuring Co-Founder Joshua David and lead designer James Corner. It was shot back in April, a couple months before the park opened, and it's amazing how different the landscape looks.

Like any respectable New York City park, the High Line has attracted its fair share of recurring characters (anyone have any video of Boba Fett playing video game songs on his accordion?), but none have been quite as popular as the "Renegade Cabaret" that has emerged from an apartment building adjacent to the Line at 20th Street. Patty (the emcee) and Elizabeth (the singer) have begun "exploiting the captive audience" on the High Line, treating the late night guests at the northern end of section 1 to some good old fashioned sing-song.

More images and video after the break.

The Post ran this as part of their coverage of opening this week. A good, short summary.

As if we could love the Charlie Rose Show any more.

There's a lot of High Line talk at the beginning of this interview, plus discussion of Diller Scofidio + Renfro's other work: The Blur Building, the ICA in Boston, and of course the new Alice Tully Hall.
