  • Santina
    820 Washington Street
    Lunch 11:30AM - 2:30PM Monday - Friday; Dinner 5:30PM - Midnight Daily

    Located at the southernmost entrance to the High Line, at Gansevoort and Washington Streets, Santina is a coastal Italian restaurant created by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick. Situated on what used to be the coast of Manhattan, where some of the city’s first farmers market once stood, Santina takes inspiration from the neighborhood’s history with a menu that highlights vegetables and fish. Dishes like giardinia crudite, spaghetti blue crab, and bass Agrigento integrate Italian coastal cuisine with modern culinary sensiblities. Santina is open year-round.

  • Presented by Friends of the High Line, High Line Art commissions and produces public art projects on and around the High Line. Founded in 2009, High Line Art presents a wide array of artwork including side-specific commissions, exhibitions, performances, video programs, and a series of billboard interventions. Curated by Cecilia Alemani, the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Curator & Director of High Line Art, and produced by Friends of the High Line, High Line Art invites artists to think of creative ways to engage with the uniqueness of the architecture, history, and design of the High Line and to foster a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighborhood and urban landscape.

  • The High Line’s planting design is inspired by the self-seeded landscape that grew on the out-of-use elevated rail tracks during the 25 years after trains stopped running. The species of perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees were chosen for their hardiness, sustainability, and textural and color variation, with a focus on native species. Many of the species that originally grew on the High Line’s rail bed are incorporated into the park’s landscape.

    The design of the High Line’s landscape also emphasizes a diversity in bloom time, with plants blooming from late January to mid-November.
