From tasteful nudes to tasty (risotto) balls, there are many different ways to celebrate Pride Week on the High Line.
Due to large crowds anticipated in Chelsea for NYC Pride festivities, the New York City Police Department and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation ask us to close early the day of the parade—at 6:00 PM on Sunday, June 30. Until then, however, we invite you to try out special Pride Week dishes at our food vendors. And if you don’t feel like spending any cash, it’s always free to sit on the steps at 10th Avenue Square and watch the fabulously diverse crowd strut their stuff.
Rainbow Salad with Sausage & Balls at Terroir
In celebration of Pride Week, our open-air café at West 15th Street will be serving a “Loud and Proud Rainbow Salad.” Available through June 30, the colorful salad consists of mixed baby lettuce, radish, carrot, golden beets, snap peas, red onion, and lemon vinaigrette. Terroir is also getting a little saucier with a “Sausage and Balls” special for the weekend, so be sure to leave room for this dish of house-made sage leaf lamb sausage with beet and Gorgonzola risotto balls.
“As a company we support and celebrate diversity, so we are proud to participate in recognizing the groundbreaking contribution the Stonewall riots made to our city and our country," says kitchen manager Kirsten Davenport, referring to the famous uprising at Greenwich Village’s Stonewall Inn that marked a turning point in the LGBT movement for civil rights.
Proud Paletas at La Newyorkina
In honor of Pride, Fany Gerson of La Newyorkina will be offering chocolate-covered coconut paletas with rainbow sprinkles. Stop by La Newyorkina’s cart at West 17th Street to enjoy this tasty treat, which will be available Thursday through Sunday.
Photographer Kevin McDermott shot a series of fine-art nudes on the still-undeveloped High Line in 2005 and 2006, and we’re offering prints of his most famous image: Walking the High Line; Chelsea NYC. You can find McDermott’s tasteful yet provocative print online or at the High Line Shop, which is located on the High Line at West 16th Street.
