High Line Facebook fans chose Justin Lintz's nightscape to be the next High Line Print.
 

Last month we asked for your help choosing the next High Line Print for our merchandise program that supports the High Line’s maintenance and operations.

Drawing from a wealth of vibrant photographs in the High Line Flickr Pool, we narrowed it down to five of our favorites, and we asked you to help pick the winner.

More than 1,000 fans on Facebook voted for their favorite photograph, selecting an enchanting nightscape by Justin Lintz as the next High Line Print.

Follow us after the jump for more examples of Justin’s great work.

Since the very beginning, community input has played an important role in shaping the development of the High Line. This tradition continues today.

More than 400 neighbors, supporters, members, and friends attended the High Line at the Rail Yards Community Input Meeting on Monday, March 12 to see a presentation by James Corner and Ric Scofidio, of the High Line Design Team. The meeting gave our community the opportunity to be among the first to see the initial design concepts for the rail yards and to share their feedback directly with the designers.

Follow us after the jump for photos from the meeting and a summary of the public’s comments.

We have just completed our fourth week of High Line Spring Cutback.

Spring Cutback is an intense six-week-long undertaking that involves trimming back the High Line’s wild grasses, perennials, and shrubs to make way for new spring growth. It’s our biggest horticultural task of the year and High Line Gardeners couldn’t do it without the help of a dedicated group of volunteers.

Stop by the park and see the transformation underway, and follow us after the jump for an update on our recent work.
