SATURDAY & SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9 & 10: HIGH LINE VIEWINGS WITH OPENHOUSENEWYORK
For the second year, Friends of the High Line is working with openhousenewyork to introduce New Yorkers to the High Line. openhousenewyork works to bring the public to important city sites that are usually off-limits. This year, thanks to our partners at the City of New York, FHL will offer viewings of the High Line's elevated rail bed from a City-owned building in the Meatpacking District. While the High Line structure itself is still managed by CSX railroad, and we cannot actually bring people on the rail-bed itself, we will take visitors up through an out-of-use meat processing plant to a freight-car siding overlooking the Line, which is overgrown with meadow grasses and wildflowers. It's the first time we've ever been able to offer the general public such a close view of the mysterious wildscape atop the High Line. We hope you will visit us—and other openhousenewyork sites. Please note: Visitors will be accommodated on a first-come first-serve basis. All visitors will be asked to sign a release prior to entering the site. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children under 12.

Special thanks to the New York City Economic Development Corporation for making this site available to the public.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19: COMMUNITY INPUT FORUM FOR HIGH LINE DESIGN
Many of you may have read articles in the press about the preliminary selection of the design team led by Field Operations, working in collaboration with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, to create the High Line master plan. While the official selection has yet to be formally announced (we expect a formal announcement to be made shortly), we have scheduled our first public session to encourage public participation in the design process.

High Line Community Input Forum
Design Phase One
Tuesday, October 19, 7pm - 10pm
Metropolitan Pavilion
110 West 19th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues)
FREE
RSVP by October 12 to community@thehighline.org or call (212) 206-9922

This will be your first opportunity to work directly with the design team, Friends of the High Line, and the City of New York on the design of a great new public space for our community. At the forum, you will meet representatives from the design team, and view their initial concepts. You will then be able to share your ideas to help guide the team as they continue their design work.
