Honoring
Robert Hammond

CSX Transportation
Ethan Hawke

Hudson River Park’s Pier 57
Cocktails at 6:30 PM, dinner to follow.

Your support will ensure that the High Line remains an extraordinary experience in the coming year and that the park is poised for even greater success in the future, as we begin work on the High Line at the Rail Yards, the third and final section of this landmark public park. 

This year, Friends of the High Line is pleased to be honoring Co-Founder Robert Hammond, who will conclude a decade and a half of unwavering dedication to the High Line when he steps down as Executive Director of Friends of the High Line at the end of the year; High Line Board Member John Blondel, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, who has passionately championed the High Line for more than a decade and is now playing an integral role in the work to complete our vision for the High Line; CSX Transportation, which generously donated the entire historic High Line structure to the City of New York; and renowned actor, writer, and director Ethan Hawke, a long-time Chelsea resident who joined us in our earliest efforts to save and secure the High Line.

The vibrancy and energy of High Line supporters are what make this party so special. We hope you’ll join us and reserve your tickets or table now!

Tickets start at $1,500. For details and more information about tickets, tables, or to make a contribution, contact Alicia Salmon, alicia.salmon@thehighline.org or (212) 206-9922.
