When I joined Friends of the High Line as Executive Director, I was overjoyed to take on new challenges and lead one of the most wondrous places in New York City. It has been a privilege to work with the smart, dedicated and passionate staff of Friends of the High Line, as well as its devoted Board of Directors, led with grace and wisdom by Chair Catie Marron.

Join us for a night of summer salsa on Wednesday, August 27.

At our third ¡Arriba! event of the summer, groove to the sounds of Nu D’Lux, one of the city’s most original Cuban-style bands. Inspired by the guajiro musical rhythms, the group offers a funky mix of son montuno, rumba, danzon, and timba styles. Cool off with icy treats from our food vendors, or make a night of it with a meal from The Taco Truck, Smokeline, or Terroir at The Porch, where you can also sip a refreshing glass of wine or craft beer.

And from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, Terroir will also be setting up a "satellite" bar right next to ¡Arriba! The cash-only bar will offer beer, wine, and bottled water. In addition, Brooklyn Soda Works will be offering its carbonated fresh juices and sodas right in the 14th Street Passage.

EnlargeWater Tower Model Kit

The newest product to hit the High Line Shop is a replica model kit of a Brooklyn water tower, produced and manufactured locally by Boundless Brooklyn. David Shulman and Terence Arjo, the brain trust behind the company, were attracted to the local iconography of the towers. The kit materials are 100% recyclable and 100% DIY – you can build and customize the tower any way you like. Models can be assembled in minutes and will fit perfectly on a desk, shelf, or end table.

This item will only be sold at the High Line Shop cart in the Chelsea Market Passage, at West 16th Street. The shop is open from 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM each day. You can also find a variety of other great gifts – including apparel, accessories, books, and posters – in the High Line web shop.
