Creating a Welcoming Public Space for All of Our Neighbors

November 23, 2015

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!
