Earlier this summer, the Daily Beast's Matthew Dakotah interviewed co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond on their thoughts about the High Line's opening season. The piece is now up, and offers a nice look into the minds of the guys behind the park.

Parking Day 2008 Video from Streetfilms



Park(ing) Day, one of our favorite yearly public space happenings, takes to the New York City streets this Friday!

This international event transforms metered parking spaces into playgrounds, parks, creative installations, and unusual meeting-grounds for all to hit the pavement and enjoy. Converting car-intended spots throughout the five boroughs, these park(ing) spaces are a great example of  street-space reclaimed. Park(ing) Day's mission doesn't sound too far off from the High Line's reclamation of  space for the public.

Last year the High Line participated in the Park(ing) Day extravaganza, one of 57 spaces across the city. This year, our newly-opened park hovers 30 feet higher than most parking spaces, but encourages you to check out a nearby Park(ing) Day space on ground level. A map and description of all the spots is here.

One of our favorites is right here in the neighborhood.  Weave the Hearts, sponsored by the West Harlem Art Fund and created by Japanese artist Shintaro Tokairin, can be located at 400 W. 14th Street, near 9th Avenue. Tokairin has created a woven installation piece which will encapsulate the space, inviting visitors to relax and indulge in the artistically-inspired parking spot.

From walks and talks to family art workshops and performances, we strive to put together a calendar of events for all High Line visitors that are as unique and exciting as the High Line itself.

The "Goings on About Town" photo in this week's New Yorker featured a familiar sight to anyone who's strolled the High Line on a hot day.  The Sundeck's lounge chairs – both rolling and stationary – have become a veritable Mecca for sunbathers.

For those who remember the early iterations of the High Line's design, the photo also reminds us of something...

Our flickr pool, now well past its infancy and into its chubby adolescence, is a great repository of High Line visitor photos. It's a fun browse, but it needs your help to grow big and strong.

If you're on flickr, please take a moment to add your best High Line shots to our pool. You'll be glad you helped  expand the prettiest little corner of the internet.
