High Line Teen Picks Movie Series: Vote for ‘Step Up’ or ‘The Notebook’


Have you ever thought about giving up, but then something changed your mind?

High Line Teen Picks will transform the park’s 14th Street Passage into an outdoor community movie theater for three Thursdays in August. Bring your friends and family each week for a different movie picked by local teens, and cheer on the movie characters as they struggle to overcome obstacles and realize their dreams.

Last year we surveyed community members living near the High Line, and many teens expressed interest in attending summer film screenings at the park. So this year, we’ve recruited local teens to help us curate an entire series. The teens decided to show films about underdogs realizing their dreams despite all odds. “We picked these movies because the High Line itself is a reinvention – built by people who didn’t give up.”

High Line Teen Picks begins on Thursday, August 2 with an audience choice. Help us decide between Step Up (2007), a teen romance where two worlds unite as one passion explodes on the dance floor, or The Notebook (2004), a life-long romance set in the 1940s starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams that stirs up your heart all the way to the end.

Voting has closed. Thank you to all who cast their vote. It's official: Step Up will launch the Teen Picks movie series.

High Line Teen Picks is free and open to visitors of all ages. No RSVP required. All movies are rated PG-13.
