March 31 at City Hall – Save the High Line at the Rail Yards, Get a Free T-Shirt!


Please note the new date: this hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 31.

This City Council hearing is an important step in the public review process for the rail yards and, therefore, for the future of the High Line. It  will be a critical opportunity to show the City, State and developer how much public support there is for preserving the High Line at these sites.

The Council has been an ardent supporter of the High Line from the very beginning of our advocacy efforts. By coming to this hearing, you’ll galvanize that support and send a clear message to all decision makers in the development process.
