My High Line

Meet Neftaly Garcia, an inspiring young educator, in our newest My High Line video.

High Line Art's New Website

Celebrate Halloween on the High Line

Join us on Saturday, October 26, for our fourth-annual High Line Halloween celebration!

Bring your children for a day of trick-or-treating, art, music, and spooky fun. This free event will be held from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM between West 14th and West 17th Streets. See our event calendar for details.

Gifts for Art Lovers

The High Line Art Tote ($22) is back by popular demand. Lightweight and sleek in black and gray, this sturdy tote is perfect for gallery visits and shopping trips. One side features the High Line Art logo (pictured), and the other features the High Line's logo.

Artist Mark Dion has designed an unofficial field guide and handbook ($13) for the High Line that blends fact and fiction, encouraging viewers to question popular ideologies that define today’s "official" history of the elevated park. The often-humorous text includes "thoughts, musings, and histories," and sections on "Facts, Myths, & Rumors" and "Lost & Found."

High Line Food Season Ends October 27

There are only a few weeks left to savor the High Line Food season! Sunday, October 27, is the last day to enjoy your favorite espresso, pulled pork, tacos, and other delicious foods from our vendors before they return next spring.

Through October 15, stop by Terroir at The Porch for their Apple Fest. Enjoy hot spiked cider and other special treats.

Highlights from the Web

High Line Blog
We took our cameras and went on a behind-the-scenes tour of Freshkills Park, a reclaimed site built on a former landfill.

In 2008, when this photo was taken, we were in the process of planting more than 7,500 native grasses and perennials.

What does the High Line look like at dawn? We invited a group of volunteer photographers on a special early-morning tour of the park.

Connect to nature, take time out, watch the sunset, or sketch the High Line. Be inspired.

Be a Champion for the High Line

You may not think of yourself this way, but to us, supporters like you are champions.

Thousands of members, volunteers, and neighbors came together to create our extraordinary park in the sky. The High Line as we know it today would not exist without the unwavering support of our dedicated community.

Today, the High Line still needs heroes to keep it strong and vibrant. We depend on friends like you who are committed to the High Line to make special contributions throughout the year to sustain this unique public place. Please make a special gift today to support the park you love.
