Thank you for joining us for the 2017 High Line Spring Benefit!

This year, we were proud to honor Ellen Fitzsimmons, an invaluable and generous leader on Friends of the High Line's Board who has been a tremendous advocate at CSX Transportation; Michael and Deborah McCarthy, who were among our earliest supporters and who helped bring the PBS special Elevated Thinking: The High Line to life and attract international attention to the project; and The Standard, High Line, a steadfast neighbor and partner through their own support and guest contribution program, which has inspired similar initiatives in our surrounding neighborhoods.

The evening began with cocktails at Skylight Modern, located centrally between the High Line and The Waterfront, former train depot turned infamous Tunnel nightclub, where dinner was held.

We were thrilled to hear from New York City Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen and Council Member Corey Johnson.

The vibrancy and energy of High Line supporters are what make this party so special. Thank you again to those who were able to join us!
