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.
