SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30: JOIN FHL FOR A SCREENING OF HIGH LINE TV SHOW
Please join FHL to view a one-hour TV program about the High Line. The program is part of the "Jane's New York" series on WNBC TV Channel 4 (broadcasting in the New York metropolitan area)—and it's the first program to focus so comprehensively on the High Line, its history, its future, and many of the individuals who've dedicated themselves to the High Line project. The program includes spectacular new footage of the High Line's elevated rail bed and interviews with individuals actively involved with the project, such as photographer Joel Sternfeld; actor/FHL boardmember Edward Norton; New York City Council Speaker Gifford Miller; design team leads James Corner and Elizabeth Diller; FHL co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond; and many others. Special thanks to CSX Transportation for permitting Jane's New York to film on the High Line; and to Pyburn Films, the producers of Jane's New York, for creating such a great program.

As part of FHL's Track Heads series of informal get-togethers, we will gather at Freight, a bar and restaurant in the Chelsea Market building, to view the program on large-screen TV. Alternately, you can view the program at home at the same time.

HUNDREDS ATTEND OCTOBER 19 COMMUNITY INPUT FORUM
At the High Line Community Input Session on October 19, over 350 people gathered to meet the team of Field Operations with Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The team introduced its initial concepts and design visions. Then participants broke into small groups to discuss the presentation and frame responses to help guide the team as it continues its work. FHL thanks all the forum participants for taking the time to be an active part of the High Line design process. We will distribute a summary of the forum's findings in our next E-Mail Newsletter.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2: NEXT COMMUNITY INPUT FORUM
The next High Line Community Input Forum has been scheduled for December 2. This will be an important opportunity for the community to guide the design team's work at a crucial stage. By December 2, the team will have been working for two months and their design for the High Line will have advanced. Still, enough time will remain in the design process for comment at the December 2 forum to affect the outcome of the design in real and significant ways.

To RSVP, email community@thehighline.org; or call (212) 206-9922.

We will announce the Forum's location in our next E-Mail Newsletter
