Introducing New High Line Collection Designed by J.Crew

The latest apparel and accessories from J.Crew look beautiful—and are helping to keep the High Line gorgeous too.

We partnered with J.Crew to launch a special new collection that celebrates the High Line. There are linen botanical tees for women, vintage tees for men, playful Curious Garden tees for kids, a super-soft “Park in the Sky” onesies for babies, and much more.

For those who love the High Line, the new collection is a fun way to support the park and look great too. Thanks to J.Crew’s generous support, 100% of the net proceeds from this collection will support Friends of the High Line, helping us maintain our park in the sky all year long.
