Co-Founder Robert Hammond will be stepping down at the end of 2013 after nearly fifteen years of leadership at Friends of the High Line. He leaves behind a legacy that extends far beyond the mile-and-a-half of the High Line. Robert’s creative vision, entrepreneurial spirit, and irreverent approach will live on in the work we do each day, to maintain and operate the High Line.
We asked Robert to share a few favorite memories from his years at the High Line. Follow us after the jump for photos and reflections in Robert’s own words.
To hear more of Robert’s memories, join us on Thursday, December 5, for a special farewell talk.
