FRONT-PAGE LOS ANGELES TIMES ARTICLE ABOUT THE HIGH LINE
On Saturday, May 15, the Los Angeles Times ran a comprehensive front-page article by Robert Lee Hotz about FHL's efforts to preserve and reuse the High Line. Along with its prominent placement and its thoughtful reporting, the article is notable for the way it defines the High Line as a project of national significance and includes details about other elevated rail-trail projects in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Rotterdam that have been influenced by FHL's work.

JOIN FHL ON JUNE 9 FOR PICNIC AT HUDSON RIVER PARK:
A "TRACK HEADS" GET-TOGETHER
On Wednesday, June 9, at 6:30 p.m., Friends of the High Line invites all interested supporters to its second "Track Heads" get-together: a picnic on the Christopher Street Pier, in Hudson River Park. Please RSVP

You may bring your own picnic dinner, or you may order a boxed dinner through FHL. All those that RSVP will receive an e-mail from FHL with directions to the picnic site and details about the boxed-dinner option.

The Christopher Street Pier is part of the Greenwich Village section of Hudson River Park, which opened in May 2003. Like the larger Hudson River Park, the reconstructed pier is a spectacular amenity for New York City—a place of great beauty with views of passing ships, the Statue of Liberty, and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

Special thanks go to Friends of Hudson River Park (FoHRP), our hosts for the evening. FoHRP has scheduled its own series of summer events, including a High Line/Hudson River Park walking tour on June 22.

View full schedule of FoHRP summer events.

About Track Heads: This series of informal get-togethers gives all people interested in the High Line project the chance to meet each other and FHL staff while enjoying the many cultural, recreational, and entertainment opportunities available in the High Line District.

About FoHRP: Friends of Hudson River Park (FoHRP) has been organized to support the development of Hudson River Park on Manhattan's West Side. Its mission is to provide private sector advocacy and financial support for a world-class park on the Hudson that will enrich the experiences of neighboring residents, serve as place of recreation and education for citizens from all parts of the City, and create a great urban waterfront from 59th Street south to the Battery.

FOR CURRENT FHL DONORS: BUMBLE & BUMBLE TO DONATE A PORTION OF SALON PROCEEDS TO FHL
Friends of the High Line is pleased to announce that for a limited time—from now until July 28, 2004—Bumble and bumble will donate a portion of proceeds from its beautiful new salon in the Meat Packing District to Friends of the High Line.

As part of Bumble and bumble's sponsorship of our summer benefit on July 14th, the company will donate $50 to FHL on your behalf when you book any service at its new downtown (13th Street) flagship. Make your appointment by calling the salon's booking room at (212) 521-6500 and mentioning the code HLN. You must already be a donor to Friends of the High Line to take advantage of this generous offer.


About Bumble and bumble's new salon: In the heart of the Meat Packing District, Bumble and bumble has created a destination "hair world" where people can get a great cut or color, take afternoon tea, browse the latest Bb products and a hand-picked selection of books and magazines, and prepare to shop around the block in one of the city's most dynamic neighborhoods. Sweeping top-floor views provide a magnificent view of the Hudson and lower Manhattan—and a perfect view of the High Line, as well.
