Event Pass Information

Event Pass Type
General Public$20.00 USD

Event Details

Meet in the plaza between the Whitney Museum and the south end of High Line Park.   

With the departure of commercial shipping and related activity from the Hudson River waterfront, the demolition of portions of the former High Line (a freight branch of the New York Central Railroad) and the creation of Hudson River Park has generated opportunities for extensive new development.

View a variety of new architecture in areas formerly served by now-demolished sections of the High Line, as well as parts of Hudson River Park. Included are buildings designed by Dattner Architects, Herzog & de Meuron, Richard Meier, Renzo Piano, Annabelle Selldorf, Robert A. M. Stern, and WXY Architecture, among others.
