On Thursday, July 18, Friends of the High Line and the High Line Teen Arts Council, welcomed more than 275 teens to the first High Line Teen Night. The theme was “High Line Boardwalk,” and visitors ate cotton candy, danced to summer jams, and tried their luck at carnival games.

Four months in the making, the event was produced entirely by local teens—and they made sure that we all had a blast! Check out more photos from the night after the jump. And mark your calendars for the second High Line Teen Night: Rising Stars, on Thursday, August 15.

Despite soaring temperatures, construction crews have been making great strides preparing the final section of the High Line, which will open in 2014.

Follow us after the jump to learn more and view the latest photos.
