The snow dragon, built on the Diller-von Furstenberg Sundeck by Gabriel Willow, Rebecca Pappas, and Raj Kottamasu, took first prize at yesterday's Sculpt-Off. Click the image above to watch a slideshow of photos from the event. Photo by Katy Gartside.
The stars were aligned for our first-ever High Line Snow Sculpt-Off yesterday. The overnight snowfall had blanketed the High Line with nearly a foot of sticky, wet snow that was perfect for packing. By the time our staff had finished clearing the snow (check out the video to relive the magic), the weather had warmed up just enough to enjoy being outside. An added bonus: schools were canceled and the neighborhood kids were looking for something to do.
"It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces—volunteers, neighborhood residents, and colleagues—being so creative!" Danya Sherman, our Deputy Director of Programs & Education, said. "The High Line is and always will be a place for neighbors being innovative—and having fun."
