Congratulations to Friends of the High Line, who opened the second section of the elevated High Line park yesterday, June 7th. The ribbon cutting ceremony included Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Speaker Christine Quinn, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, the Meatpacking District's Diane von Furstenberg and High Line co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond. The High Line park now stretches from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 30th Street in the Hudson Yards area.
The second section of the High Line park adds 4 access points, on-site artwork, new lookout points, seating areas, the "great lawn", new food vendors, and more. Additionally, at the end of the High Line is the "Rainbow City" art installation presented by AOl, which was featured last December at Miami Art Basel. Additionally, down the steps from the High Line on 30th Street is the new parking lot beer garden from Tom Colicchio, called "The Lot on Tap", set to open today June 8th and close on September 30th.
Congratulations to the Whitney Museum of American Art, for breaking ground this past Tuesday on the Gansevoort Street site of their new Museum, set to open in 2015. The Groundbreaking ceremony took place in a tent on the lot of which their new building will be built, and was attended by Mayor Bloomberg and the new building's architect Renzo Piano, along with many of the museums donors, including NYC socialites, celebrities, and art collectors. The ceremony concluded with a live art piece by the Elizabeth Streb dance company, which dumped dirt onto Elizabeth Streb, into which Mayor Bloomberg and museum's director dug shovels and posed for the classic groundbreaking photos. Check out more information on the new building and the ground breaking ceremony from The New York Observer here.
