High Line Events
Step To The High Line
NYC Public School Students Bring Their Energy To The High Line For A Series Of Step Competitions, Performances, And A Stepping Workshop Wednesday, June 13
Saturday, June 16
Friends of the High Line, Youth Step USA, and Hudson Guild are pleased to present the 2nd Annual Step to the High Line, a four-day festival during which New York City public school students will turn the High Line into their stage with dynamic step competitions and lively performances, on June 13 -16 on the High Line below The Standard and in the 14th Street Passage at West 14th Street.
The event is free and open to the public with no RSVP required.
Step is a form of creative expression that celebrates the power and energy of youth through synchronized stomping, clapping, calling, and other sounds. The history of step is rooted in the competitive schoolyard song-and-dance rituals of historically African American fraternities and sororities. WATCH A VIDEO to see Organized C.H.A.O.S., one of the step teams taking part in this past year’s festival, perform a routine that ushered in the opening of Section 2 of the High Line on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.

High Line Karma Chain Saturday, April 30, 2011 11:00 am
In Buddhism, karma is the collective effect of an individual’s actions in forming his or her destiny in the next life. But can words be considered actions? What are the consequences of linguistic actions? And how do words travel and mutate as they pass from one person to the next? Find out when Pema Wangdak, a Tibetan lama, utters a sutra—an aphorism—into the ear of one person who will relay the sutra to another and another on down a chain of people extending over the length of the High Line.
The message will migrate as in a game of telephone until it reaches the chair and founder of the PEN World Voices Festival, Salman Rushdie. Rushdie will relay the original precept and its reinterpretation to the crowd and on Twitter.
This event will take place along the entire High Line.
FREE, Registration required on the day of the event. Register on the High Line under The Standard, New York.
EVERY TUESDAY: Stargazing on the High Line
During the warmer months of the year, Friends of the High Line and the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York invite you to gaze at the stars using high-powered telescopes, and get a lesson from the experts on the celestial wonders of New York City's night sky. Stargazing on the High Line takes place every Tuesday at dusk, weather permitting. Stargazing's location is dependent upon night sky conditions each week.
