Thanks to all who joined us for our first season of free and low-cost programs on the High Line!

From walks and talks to family art workshops and performances, we strive to put together a calendar of events for all High Line visitors that are as unique and exciting as the High Line itself.

We are beginning to plan programs for next year, so please email us at info@thehighline.org with your suggestions!

We’ve got a full calendar of programs planned for the fall, and now’s the time to sign up. Highlights include Yoga on the High Line with Nikki Costello, a workshop to build your own recycled railroad with the Children’s Museum of Art,  talks with High Line VP of Horticulture and Operations Patrick Cullina and creator of the High Line’s first public art installation Spencer Finch, as well as walking tours every Sunday.

Full calendar here, but sign up for our email newsletter for future announcements- or better yet, become a member to get first notification of upcoming programs.
