Event Details

Friends of the High Line Co-Founder Robert Hammond will talk about his experiences -- both setbacks and successes -- as part of Friends of the High Line for the last ten years. Robert started Friends of the High Line in 1999 with Joshua David, when the two sat next to each other at a Community Board meeting. Robert will talk about the organization's foundation, growth, and how it took the High Line from the brink of demolition to one of New York City's most popular public places.

 

The talk will take place on the West side of the 14th Street passage between 13th and 14th Streets on the High Line.

 

FREE. RSVP recommended but not required. Walk-ins will be admitted until the program is full.
