After eight years, the once dilapidated rail line that has been transformed into a lush elevated park known as the High Line is complete. Construction began in 2006.

New designs for The High Line‘s much anticipated third section feature an odd bowl-shaped space which will eventually contain a dense and elaborate garden, carefully perched atop the city’s beloved elevated park, jutting out over West 30th Street and 10th Avenue, as seen in these renderings by James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro. In contrast to the surrounding urban […]

The newest commissioned artwork for the High Line Billboard was recently unveiled. Chosen for the billboard was “Waking“, a 1984 image featuring the collaborative artist duo Gilbert & George surrounded on both sides by various young men, many of whom are wearing rather garish makeup, and are accompanied by several expressive splotches of color.

“How are you feeling?” David Shrigley asks from his billboard by the High Line at West 18th. Not so good, apparently. The artist for whom I hold an unprofessional level of admiration erected a monument to universal bad feelings. Who isn’t “insecure” and “trapped,” right? There are two primary ways to experience this piece as you stroll down […]

What’s 70-feet long, weighs tons, looks like a 1943 Baldwin 2900 steam locomotive and hangs over the High Line? A Jeff Koons proposed public sculpture and it’s looking for a sponsor. Friends of the High Line are already in love with it and think that a giant steel train monster dangling in the wind from a crane above […]

Artist Alison Knowles will once again re-stage her 1962 Fluxus performance on Earth Day, April 22nd, hurling large quantities of greens and salad somewhere on or off the High Line.
