High Line Project Administrator Job Opening

The City of New York Department of Parks & Recreation seeks a High Line Project Administrator. The Project Administrator will serve as a senior manager within the Department of Parks & Recreation, overseeing plans for the adaptive reuse of the High Line as public open space.

A Citywide Job Vacancy Notice was posted for this position on April 7, 2006. Cover letters and resumes must be received on or before April 21, 2006. View Job Vacancy Notice

Important note: Cover letters and resumes must be directed to the City of New York Department of Parks & Recreation at the address included in the Job Vacancy Notice. Do not phone or send materials to Friends of the High Line (FHL).

Background: Since November 2005, when the City of New York took ownership, the High Line has been under the jurisdiction of the Department of Parks & Recreation. FHL still plays an essential role in the project. FHL began as an advocacy group; as the park develops, FHL will likely evolve into a conservancy, following the model of Central Park Conservancy and other park conservancies across the city. Raising private funds for construction and future maintenance will be an important part of FHL's mission. Together with the City and the Department of Parks & Recreation, FHL will help make certain that the High Line is designed, built, maintained, operated, and programmed at a level of excellence that ensures its future as one of the city's best-loved parks.
