Friends of the High Line
Friends of the High Line, founded in 1999, works to build and maintain an extraordinary public park on the High Line, in New York City. Created on the remains of an elevated and abandoned railroad tussle on the far West Side of Manhattan, Friends of the High Line saved the historic structure from demolition, and transformed an essential piece of New York’s industrial past into a groundbreaking community asset. Designed by landscape architect James Corner Field Operations and architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro the High Line is among New York City’s most popular destinations, with sweeping views of the New York harbor, the Hudson River, and the New York City skyline, welcoming thousands of visitors every year.
Work: campaign feasibility and design, organizational development, and capacity building.
