Welcome, Jenny!

We're thrilled to welcome Jenny Gersten as the new Executive Director of Friends of the High Line. Since we announced Jenny's appointment in October, we've been excitedly waiting her arrival at the start of this year.

Jenny comes to us from the Williamstown Theatre Festival, where she helped create and oversee the organization’s long-range strategic plan and $7 million endowment fund. A lifelong New Yorker, Jenny grew up just blocks from the High Line. We hope you'll join us in welcoming Jenny and celebrating this new chapter for the High Line.

Volunteer for Spring Cutback

In keeping with planting designer Piet Oudolf’s vision, High Line plants are left untrimmed throughout the colder months to create a beautifully textured winter landscape. When spring arrives, staff and volunteers work side-by-side to trim back the more than 100,000 plants along our mile-long park. This horticultural effort, called High Line Spring Cutback, takes place throughout the entire month of March.

Spring Cutback is an enormous effort, and we would love your help! Learn how you can become a Spring Cutback volunteer.

Here's the High Line transformed into a winter wonderland.

This delightful High Line photo, "Baby vs. City," was chosen by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation as the winner of its Go Park photography contest.

You Did It!

You never cease to amaze us. In December, nearly 1,000 of our members and friends joined together to support the High Line and help meet our $350,000 Matching Gift Challenge.

Your generous contributions have now been matched dollar-for-dollar by the High Line’s Board of Directors, which means that together, friends like you have provided more than $700,000 to keep the High Line growing in the year to come.

We are deeply grateful to have your support and partnership as we begin another exciting year on the High Line, and work to open the High Line at the Rail Yards to the public. Thank you.
