About Track Heads
: FHL is launching Track Heads, a new series of High Line get-togethers, to give everyone with an interest in the High Line an opportunity to meet other supporters, FHL staff, and the exciting creative individuals who are part of this historic effort. Track Heads events are not fundraisers but social gatherings designed to be fun, interesting, and casual. FHL will try to keep Track Heads events free or at a discounted price. "Track Heads" is a railroad term. It refers to the top of the rail, where the steel meets the wheels.
About Joel Sternfeld
: Many FHL supporters know Sternfeld for his High Line images, but the work of this great American photographer over the last 30 years has encompassed a global range of subjects. "American Prospects and Before" presents gorgeous, new, large-format prints of his celebrated photographs of the American landscape in the late 1970s and early 1980s. For information on Sternfeld and this exhibition, go to http://www.luhringaugustine.com
: Noah Tepperberg's and Jason Strauss's just-opened lounge on 10th Avenue, backing up to the High Line, was designed by Philip Johnson/Alan Ritchie Architects and has been regularly mentioned in New York social columns because of its high-profile clientele. Marquee will be opening its Red Room early on Wednesday, January 28, and offering half-price drinks just for this gathering.
Upcoming Track Heads Events
: For upcoming months, Track Heads events will include drinks and dinner at Florent, the beloved restaurant in the Gansevoort Market Historic District, ice-skating at Chelsea Piers, a visit to the Armory Show (the International Fair of New Art), roller-skating at the Roxy, a picnic in Hudson River Park, and a boat tour on the historic John J. Harvey fireboat. We hope that these will give everyone interested in the High Line a chance to meet the other great people who support this exciting
urban open-space project.
