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.

We’re pleased to inform you that the 23rd Street elevator has reopened to the public as of June 27.

During Hurricane Sandy, salt water from the Hudson River surged to 10th Avenue, completely flooding the underground vault below the High Line that powers the elevator. The extensive damage caused by the salt water necessitated a full rebuild of the elevator’s systems. The elevator’s new, upgraded systems will bring improved and more reliable service to the public.

The elevator’s reconstruction process was a top priority for Friends of the High Line and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, and Friends of the High Line will continue to monitor the elevator’s to address any further performance issues as quickly as possible.

We are grateful for your support, assistance, guidance, and patience through the elevator’s reconstruction.
