Who Are The Friends of the High Line?

Friends of the High Line was founded as a community effort, uniting a diverse group of neighbors and visionaries, artists and friends around a common vision: saving the High Line, and transforming it into an incredible public open space.

Today, our role has evolved. Friends of the High Line now serves as the conservancy for the High Line, providing 98% of the park’s operating budget. But one thing hasn’t changed: The High Line still depends on a diverse group of people from across our city and around the world to come together to care for our park in the sky. As a member, you will enter this special circle of friends, and join with those who first brought this incredible public park to life.
