The High Line gets a lot of hype, but it is just one example of the many ways community leaders and creative thinkers are reimagining public space. Stop by for a special panel discussion at the second in a series of three free talks about adaptive reuse projects and public open space around the world.

Fresh Kills landfill, once the largest landfill in the world, is being transformed into Freshkills Park, one of New York City’s largest public parks. Hear James Corner, of James Corner Field Operations, and Eloise Hirsh, of the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, discuss plans for public access to the area’s creeks, wetlands, meadows, and sweeping vistas.

This High Line Program is free and open to visitors of all ages. No RSVP required. A free reception with the speakers will follow the presentation.

Stay for dinner and dessert after the talk. On the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets you will find tacos, gelato, ice pops, and more seasonal treats from our food vendors, as well as Terroir at The Porch, a full-service, open-air café serving beer, wine, and small plates with sweeping views of the Hudson River.
