Meet & Greet @ High Line (Freestyle) .. Food, Art Exhibition, Tour, Stargazing

** RSVP 'yes' only if you are certain you can join us.  No need to RSVP 'no' otherwise.  **

Spring has finally returned.  The food vendors @ High Line are all reopening in May for another year of yummy food and alcohol.  High Line Art has installed a new outdoor group art exhibition throughout the park.  On Tuesday, free guided walking tours are available at 6:30pm.  You can also do some stargazing with the Amateur Astronomers Association from 7:30 pm onwards.

Come in anytime between 6 - 8pm to meet your friends, you can either lounge around for food and alcohol, or group up to explore the park, go for a guided tour or stargazing.

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.  It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line.  Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition.  It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy.

High Line Food vendors have returned for another delicious season!  Enjoy sweet treats, savory meals and snacks, freshly brewed coffee, alcohol, and much more from

• Blue Bottle Coffee

• Delaney Barbecue’s SmokeLine

• La Newyorkina

• L’Arte del Gelato

• Melt Bakery

• People’s Pops

• The Taco Truck

• Terroir at The Porch

High Line Art presents Archeo, a new outdoor group exhibition installed throughout the park.  Featuring sculptures and installations that range from rusty railways to high-tech refrigerators, Archeo treats the High Line as an archeological dig where the artifacts of a post-industrial society can be unearthed. The exhibition will be on view through March 2015.

Weekly Free Guided Walking Tours

Hear the story behind New York City’s park in the sky.  Weekly Guided Walking Tours are free hour-long tours led by High Line Docents, knowledgeable volunteer guides who offer you an insider’s perspective on the park’s history, design, and landscape.  This program is free for all starting @ 6:30pm from the 14th Street Passage.  Space is limited.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to guarantee a spot.

Stargazing on the High Line  (Start time 7:30 pm)

You don’t have to leave New York City to see the stars. Gaze at the stars, planets, and moon through the high-powered telescopes of the Amateur Astronomers Association, and chat with the experts about the sights you see.  Stargazing at the High Line takes place every Tuesday, beginning at dusk.  The program is free  for all between 13th and 14th street starting @ 7:30pm.  (Viewing times and locations along the High Line are subject to change due to weather.)

How to get there:  By subway, take A, C, E or L to 14th street and 8th Avenue.  Walk towards the Hudson River along 14th Street.  You will find the elevator access to High Line pass 10th Avenue.

    Mad fun, especially for a Tuesday night... even though the legendary and always elusive Sabrina-OH was still nowhere to be seen

      So, Uncle Funk. Who did you mention yesterday? I think I was searching for the stargazing telescopes and I missed it. :/

      I do not recall disparaging anybody, but I'm well aware that my impeccable discretion plummets with my consumption of alcohol.

    June 24

  • Sabrina

    I am on High Line already. When you are @ the food vendor area, take a few steps down towards the Hudson River to terroir at the porch. We can split into 2 initial groups. Those who want alcohol should stay inside the fenced area and those who don't want alcohol can take the tables next to the vendor. See you in a bit.

    Bonjour Sabrina, hola!

    I have to pass: I am going back to Europe on June 23rd for the summer :)

    This is not how it sounds: I am just going home but I am excited since I have not seen my family and my friends in a year!!!

    Y'all have a great summer and see you all in September for some more fun outings :)

    As always,

    Mario

    June 10

    • Ro

      Have a great summer with your family and friends, Mario!! You will be missed.

      June 12

    • Sabrina

      See you after summer vacation, Mario! Have a nice trip.

      June 12

  • Shauna

    I could go the last 3 dates scheduled, but not the 24th. Maybe next time!

    June 12

  • Shu

    Hey the date changed? What's everyone doing now?

    June 10

  • Daniel

    Thanks for the research, Sabrina! The 24th is a much better option. (This is turning into the Godot of our meetups...)

    June 10

  • Mario

    And you too, Ro and Eddie, take good care if I don't see you before my trip!

    Best,

    Mario

    June 10

  • Sabrina

    Evangeline and Jen, sign back on because this is not happening on the 24th instead of the 17th. Read my comments below. :)

    June 10

  • Sabrina

    Have to change this to the 24th since I've just found out there's a party on the 17th which requires a $175 ticket! :/

    June 10

  • Sabrina

    Sorry guys, tomorrow is just another not so great day for stargazing or outdoor party. I would not like to take a chance when the weather forecast says thunderstorm possible. Postponing the event again to the week after. Hope you can still join us at that time.

    Sabrina

    • Kent

      Must it be a Tuesday? I'm sure we could find a weekday when it's not raining.

      June 10

    • Sabrina

      Yes, because stargazing and tour only happen on Tuesday night.

      June 10

  • Evangeline

    Hi Sabrina, Sorry can't attend this event on the 17th.

    June 9

    • Sabrina

      It's ok Evangeline. Maybe it's going to rain out again and I have to postpone it to the 24th anyway. :/ I have the worst luck organizing outdoor events this summer. :(

      June 9

  • Shauna

    Hate to say it, but it looks like more rain tomorrow. The weather just won't seem to cooperate with us!

    1 · June 9

    • Sabrina

      I'll make a decision this evening. It's a bummer but looks like we have to re-schedule. Keeping my fingers crossed.

      2 · June 9

    • Daniel

      You made the right call, Sabrina; would have been great to see everyone tonight, but good Executive Decision on your part. Plus, Ro will be able to hang out with us!

    I just realized that this conflicts with a talk I'll be attending at 7pm, so I can only stop by until 6:30. Hope you all enjoy the stargazing and tour after though!

    1 · June 8

  • Rob M.

    I'll be late, but I should be able to find a group this large.

      I will also be arriving late (around 6:30pm).

  • Kent

    :( I'm disappointed that it's been moved, but I'll definitely be there next week.

    June 4

  • Kent

    I'd be interested in coming, but I am concerned about how structured this will be; I'd like to meet some people, and am not sure how the group will be kept together. Any comments about this?

    June 1

    • Bess

      A few of the members have good quality profile picture of their face so it wouldn't be hard to recognize. Your best bet is to find Sabrina because she is one of the easily recognizable ones... Unless all Asians look the same to you. Then you're on your own. Lol... j/k

      2 · June 2

    • Daniel

      I had my face redone for the photo. Plastic surgery, baby! Tough and serious discipline, too. Not like it's ophthalmology or anything.

      June 3

  • Bess

    All i saw was highline food art... Yes, no commas... Lol

    • Daniel

      Seriously...who needs punctuation with this one? :)

      June 3

  • Sabrina

    There's 50% chance of thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon and it's going to be totally cloudy for the whole day, so stargazing is not going to happen anyway. Postponing event to next Tuesday 6/10. Hope you can still join us. Sorry guys, can't control the weather. :(

    June 2

    • Laurie

      Just checked my calendar. Can't make this date. Sorry. :(

      June 2

  • Tammy

    Maybe! I've never been to the High Line...

    April 30, 2014

  • Paul

    If there is food, there will be Paul attending :)

    4 · April 23, 2014

    • Ro

      I'm convinced Paul is the male version of me, only nicer and with a sweet tooth.

      4 · April 23, 2014

    • James Y

      Wow. Someone as sweet as Ro.
