MoMA address and hours


The designs to be displayed at MoMA have been curated from a larger body of work that the design team has been developing since fall 2004. The design team created these materials under the direction of the City of New York and Friends of the High Line (FHL), with guidance from the community gathered in multiple public input sessions. The work includes a framework plan for the Line as a whole and a preliminary design for the first stage of the Line to be constructed (from Gansevoort Street to 15th Street). FHL will post a comprehensive selection of this work on its Web site, www.thehighline.org, later this spring. FHL will also host a public presentation during April, with the design team on hand to introduce the material and respond to comments. In upcoming weeks, FHL's E-mail Newsletter will provide dates and details for the Web posting of new design work and the public presentation.
