In cooperation with the New York City Police Department and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, the High Line will close at 6:00 PM on Thursday, October 31, due to large crowds anticipated in Chelsea for Halloween. Regular park hours will resume on Friday, November 1.

We have exciting news to share with you. After completing an extensive search, it is our great pleasure to introduce Jenny Gersten, who will be joining Friends of the High Line as its Executive Director in January. Jenny will replace Robert Hammond, who earlier this year announced his plans to step down from the Executive Director position at the end of 2013. Joshua David will remain with Friends of the High Line as its President and will be working closely with Jenny in her role as Executive Director.
