Getting High...Again!

Late yesterday afternoon, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Speaker Christine Quinn, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, and other leaders and supporters gathered to cut the ribbon on the second phase of the High Line. We strolled along the new section last evening and once again-we're wound up about this phenomenal park. The design and landscaping is as impressive as the first phase and to see the city in this context is incredible. There's a lot of cool features as you walk along the trail including a sculpture by Sarah Sze, a sound installation by Julianne Swartz, a photographic billboard installation by Joel Sternfeld, and a series of rooftop dance performances by the Trisha Brown Dance Company.

Also, a temporary public plaza opens below the High Line, offering Rainbow City, an art installation presented by AOL, free community events, family activities, and more. Situated under the High Line at The Lot is a new outdoor bar, The Lot on Tap, operated by Colicchio & Sons. Brooklyn Brewery's new seasonal brew, called Brooklyn High Line Elevated Wheat, will be served exclusively at The Lot on Tap.

We can't say enough about this second phase of the park and once again we're looking forward to getting "High" all summer long.
