Making connections


The High Line was once a railway that provided vital services to the entire city. Today, the High Line as a park and community organization continues to serve as an integral resource for the West Side of Manhattan and beyond.

Our programs invite New Yorkers to reimagine what public space can be, and transform the High Line into a platform for all stories and voices. We offer free, dynamic, and intergenerational community programming on and off the park in partnership with neighboring community-based organizations.
