The High Line: Capalino+Company Helps Create an Icon for Innovative Design

The Highline icon for innovative design NYC

The High Line

Success Story: Friends of the High Line

Services: Government Relations; Budget; Land Use Planning + Zoning; Community Relations + Mobilization

Capalino+Company served as an advisor to Friends of the High Line, a private not-for-profit conservancy organization that maintains and operates the High Line Park on Manhattan’s West Side. We helped secure approvals and raised public funding to transform the elevated freight rail line into an innovative public park.

“Not since Central Park opened in 1857 has a park reshaped New Yorkers’ thinking about public space and the city more profoundly.”

The High Line is recognized as an icon for innovative design and sustainability and has become an inspiration to other cities for its extraordinary use of public space and ‘greening’ the urban environment.

Owned by the City of New York, the High Line is a public park maintained, operated, and programmed by Friends of the High Line, in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

September 21, 2014 marked the opening of Section 3 of the High Line.  The completed 1.45-mile linear elevated park has firmly cemented its place as a one of New York City’s major public spaces.  Read more from the New York Times: The High Line Opens Its Third and Final Phase
