Please RSVP to community@thehighline.org; or call Ameka at (212) 206-9922.

Come see the design of the High Line in process. The design team, led by Field Operations with Diller Scofidio + Renfro, is hard at work developing their vision for the High Line. The architects and engineers will present an update on their work - both a technical assessment of the structure and the ecology on the High Line, as well as new design ideas, including lighting, access and seating. The December 2 forum is a great opportunity to learn more about the High Line design and shape its progress. The goal of the forum is not just for you to hear from the designers but to continue a dialogue between you and the designers. We hope to see you there.

SUMMARY OF OCTOBER 19 COMMUNITY INPUT FORUM
On the evening of October 19, over 300 participants from the greater High Line community gathered at Metropolitan Pavilion to meet the design team of Field Operations with Diller Scofidio + Renfro and learn about the team's preliminary design concepts for the conversion of the High Line to public open space. Following the presentation and a short question-and-answer session, participants broke into groups to discuss the team's preliminary ideas and to formulate responses. At the conclusion of the evening, a representative from each group presented its comments and recommendations to the assembled forum.

You can view a forum summary online that includes an overview of the October 19 forum, a round-up of the principal questions and comments that emerged, and a transcript of the question-and-answer session. View forum summary.

Community input is an integral part of the design process for the High Line, and there will be opportunity for public participation at regular intervals. We thank all the participants who attended the October 19 forum, and hope that you will join us at the next High Line Community Input Forum on Thursday, December 2.
