Friends of the High Line is partnering with Fulton Youth of the Future, a non-profit community organization within the Robert Fulton Houses that helps teens gain career skills, to bring the first greenmarket to the High Line as part of High Line Food, a program connecting New Yorkers to the region's sustainable farms. The teens are starting small, with a market table open at The Lot every Tuesday from 2:00 to 7:00 PM until October.

The 23rd Street Lawn is a favorite new gathering space on the High Line, offering open green space for picnicking, sunbathing, and people-watching. Rejuvenation plays a major role in sustaining the Lawn. To this end, the Lawn will be temporarily closed at times throughout the busy season to allow the grass to recover after periods of heavy rain and foot traffic. The Lawn will be temporarily closed and it will reopen as soon as possible. This will help keep the Lawn a welcoming green space all season long.
