High Line Update

Fujifilm joins Friends of the High Line with Portrait project

Hundreds of photographs will be displayed in unique outdoor galleries to raise awareness of High Line park, projected to open in 2008.

As the High Line park takes shape above the streets of New York City, construction fencing in the neighborhood will feature improvised outdoor art galleries covered with photographs of High Line supporters from the local community and beyond according to Friends of the High Line.

The group will also launch a Web site featuring the portraits, http://www.thehighline.org/portraits.

Dubbed "The High Line Portrait Project" and made possible with a $50,000 donation from Fujifilm, the photographs capture the spirit of the inventive new park that is being built atop the High Line elevated rail structure, which runs through the Manhattan neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell's Kitchen.

The High Line Park will be a unique 21st century public space. Plans are underway to transform a 6.7acre span of former elevated train track running 22 blocks into an open park.

The 190 condominium units in The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the future High Line Park had sold out in April, within eight months of sales.

For additional information including beautiful High Line pictures photographed by Joel Sternfeld along with news, preliminary designs, a film about the history of the High Line Rail and more please visit the Friends of the High Line website.
