Friends of the High Line is seeking proposals for innovative, sustainable, and affordable food on the High Line in 2012.

Proposals are due by 3:00 PM on Wednesday, February 1. Download the Request for Proposals.

Friends of the High Line is also seeking an operator to run a new full-service, year-round restaurant to open directly below the High Line at Gansevoort and Washington Streets in October, 2013. Proposals for the restaurant are due on Thursday, March 15.


Tuesday, January 24 is final day to check out the screening of Gordon Matta-Clark’s City Slivers on the High Line. The silent film has been looping on HIGH LINE CHANNEL since November, and tomorrow it will be de-installed to make way for a new art film.

HIGH LINE CHANNEL is on view daily from dusk to 10:00 PM. The film is viewable during normal operating hours from the Seating Steps on the High Line, and also from the sidewalk below along West 22nd Street.


We would like thank the members, supporters, neighbors, and friends who helped us make 2011 an incredible year for the High Line.

We've compiled some of our favorite images, video, and stories from this extraordinary year and posted them on our blog. We hope you enjoy them!


For almost a year, Kim Beck’s skeletal sculptures, reminiscent of empty billboard frames, have been installed on three rooftops next to the southern end of the High Line. Now as the exhibit, Space Available, is drawing to a close, we’d like to invite you out one more time to enjoy her work before the sculptures are taken down next week.
