First-Ever High Line Snow Sculpt-Off

It's snowing again in New York City. The forecast indicates we could get nearly a foot of snow midday tomorrow, and word from the High Line Gardeners is that the snow is perfect for packing.

That means it's time for the first-ever High Line Snow Sculpt-Off.

Grab your hat and mittens, and bring your creativity to the High Line tomorrow, Thursday, January 27, at 2:00 PM. The sky is the limit for what you can build.

Team must register with Friends of the High Line to compete for a variety of prizes, including an iPod Shuffle, behind-the-scenes tours of the High Line, special High Line merchandise, gifts from local stores, and more.

Registration begins at 2:00 PM on the lower level of the Chelsea Market Passage (on the High Line at West 15th Street). Bring your own tools and materials to build and decorate your sculpture.

Questions? Email info@thehighline.org.
