HYBRID Highlights of the NYC High Line
The New York City High Line is only 1.45 miles long but it’s packed with history old and new.
Take a walk on The High Line with Mario Medici, amateur photographer and historian, and discover how the High Line was transformed from a historic elevated freight rail to one of New York City’s most popular parks.
Check out the new architecture, gigantic skyscrapers built over train tracks, century-old ice buildings, shopping centers, new sculpture art, and, yes, even where the Oreo cookie was discovered!
Mario’s presentation includes visits to the recently opened “Little Island @ Pier 55” and a look down from “The Edge” the 1171’ observation deck above Manhattan. Whether you’re planning a visit to The High Line or just curious to see what The High Line has to offer, this presentation is not to be missed.
This lecture is open to all and will take place as a hybrid program both in-person and virtually on Zoom.
Registration is not required to attend the event in-person, but is required if attending virtually on Zoom. Information on how to access the event through Zoom will be emailed to registrants the day of the event. All in-person participants are required to follow all current CDC guidelines.
