I hope you were able to join us last Wednesday under the High Line as we celebrated the release of Designing the High Line, our new design publication showcasing High Line designs from Gansevoort-30th Street. With some help from a lighting designer and Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, we transformed a construction staging area into an amazing party venue. Check out photos by our fabulous volunteer, Jeffrey Donenfeld. At Friends of the High Line, we concentrate a lot on what the space on top of the High Line will look like, but this event got me excited about how great the area underneath the Line can be!
Over 700 guests mingled under the Line while enjoying tasty treats from the Cleaver Co. and sipping Brooklyn Brewery beer. Thanks to everyone who showed up to toast our design and construction teams, and a special thanks to the evening's sponsors, Related, Cardinal Investments, 511 West 25th Street, SHoP Architets, and Alf Naman for the use of the space under the Line. If you didn't get to pick up a copy of Designing the High Line, it's available on Amazon.com.
