New Amenities at Washington Street

We've recently moved into our new headquarters, The Diller – von Furstenberg Building at Washington and Gansevoort Streets.

Our new space provides additional amenities for visitors like public restrooms. In addition to these essential public amenities, the building houses maintenance workshops, plant staging areas, composting areas, and the High Line’s only freight elevator – essential components to maintaining an extraordinary public space on the High Line today and for future generations.

Q&A with Our New Executive Director

Although it's been only a few weeks since Jenny Gersten joined Friends of the High Line as our new Executive Director, we feel like this dynamic New York City native is already part of the family. We sat down with the former Artistic Director of the Williamstown Theatre to learn more about her vision for our growing organization.

High Line Membership Renewal: Rail Yards Opening Year

The High Line is here because of you! Together, members and friends help us provide virtually all of the High Line's annual operating budget – essential funding that keeps the park vibrant and welcoming all year round.

In fact, our staff is planning now for another year filled with beautiful plantings, engaging events, innovative artwork, and the opening of the third and final section of the High Line. But to make it all happen, we need you.

Please renew your membership or join today. As you consider giving, know that your support early in the year has an even larger impact. By making your membership contribution now, you provide the High Line with essential support at a critical time as we plan our seasonal programs. Thank you!
