UPCOMING RAIL YARDS EVENTS
This Thursday, November 29: Rail Yards Proposals Viewing and Drinks FREE
Monday, December 3: Rail Yards Architects Presentations FREE
December 10: Hudson Yards Community Advisory Committee's Rail Yards Input Forum FREE

Each of these three events has a different format, and each offers an opportunity to learn more about the proposals before the MTA's selection process begins. It's essential that High Line supporters show decision-makers at the MTA how important it is to preserve the entire historic High Line at the rail yards. If you can't make any of these events, please go see the exhibit of the proposals and fill out a comment form before December 3.




THIS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29: RAIL YARDS PROPOSALS VIEWING AND DRINKS FREE
Join Friends of the High Line to view and comment on the proposals now on exhibition near Grand Central Terminal. This may be your last chance to view and comment on the designs, which are only on display until December 3. Afterward, join us across the street at Annie Moore's bar for a free drink and informal discussion. FHL staff will be on hand to discuss the rail yards and other High Line developments.
