Park Update: Crews have cleared the High Line's paths, and the park is open to the public between Gansevoort and 30th Streets. We are working to open the remainder of the park as soon as possible. Please check back or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.

Creating a Welcoming Public Space for All of Our Neighbors

While reading the compelling New York Times article, "In Chelsea, a Great Wealth Divide," we were happy to discover a quote from Juwan Stone, a past member of Friends of the High Line's Youth Corps, who named the High Line as a place where he feels welcome even as the neighborhood changes.

A great reminder of why we do what we do. It is public programs like Youth Corps – a paid teen summer job training program in which students work with High Line educators to staff our kids' programs – that help turn public spaces into community spaces. Thank you, Juwan!
