We've unveiled our latest design concept for the Spur, a wide section of the High Line at the Rail Yards that extends over 10th Avenue at West 30th Street.

Visitors to this unique area of the High Line will be able to immerse themselves in nature by entering a bowl-shaped structure ringed with broad-leaf woodland grasses, perennials and ferns. See the just-released renderings on our blog.

Join us on Saturday, October 26, for our fourth-annual Haunted High Line Halloween!

Bring the whole family for an afternoon of trick-or-treating, art, music, and spooky fun. Sneak through a haunted train tunnel (if you dare!), get lost in a hay-bale maze, decorate pumpkins, pose for pictures in our dress-up photo booth, and so much more. Activities will be held from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at various locations on the High Line. See our event page for details.

We have exciting news to share with you. After completing an extensive search, it is our great pleasure to introduce Jenny Gersten, who will be joining Friends of the High Line as its Executive Director in January. Jenny will replace Robert Hammond, who earlier this year announced his plans to step down from the Executive Director position at the end of 2013. Joshua David will remain with Friends of the High Line as its President and will be working closely with Jenny in her role as Executive Director.
