After more than 14 years of work preserving and transforming the High Line and inspiring new ways of thinking about the city, parks, public space, preservation, and community, Co-Founder Robert Hammond will be leaving Friends of the High Line at the end of 2013.

Robert will share his reflections on the cultural institution he created with Co-Founder Joshua David in a public talk on December 5. Come celebrate Robert’s dedication, vision, and leadership at this farewell event. Amanda Burden, Chair of the New York City Planning Commission and Director of the Department of City Planning, will introduce Robert. Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation, will moderate.

To learn more about the hard work, innovative thinking, and sheer nerve that went into the creation of the High Line, see Robert and Joshua's acceptance speech for the Vincent Scully Prize, recorded earlier this fall.
