New High Line Art Billboard Debuts Today

Baseball season has arrived at the High Line, thanks to a new High Line Art installation by Raymond Pettibon.

The artist’s drawing, pictured above, is being installed on HIGH LINE BILLBOARD at West 18th Street today. The work, named No Title (Safe he called…), shows the Boston Red Sox and the Brooklyn Dodgers and evokes the decades-old competition between the East and West Coasts. It will be on view through Monday, July 1.

Learn more about the artist and his work for the High Line. .

Beyond the High Line: Transforming the City of Brotherly Love

This year’s Beyond the High Line series kicks off on Monday, June 24 with Philadelphia’s Reading Viaduct.

Just like the High Line, the Reading Viaduct’s freight rail traffic ceased operations in the 1980s. Nature has since taken over, covering the tracks with self-seeded grasses and shrubs, as pictured above.

Now the High Line is serving as a platform for Philadelphia leaders to present their vision for the Reading Viaduct’s reuse.

Join us for a free public talk on the High Line to learn about the movement to transform the Reading Viaduct into public open space. Get location, time, and more details
