Did you visit the High Line yet?

If not, you have several reasons to go this summer.

On Sunday July 12  the Target High Line Street Festival will take over Gansevoort Street between Ninth Avenue and Washington Street, in the Meatpacking District with the World’s Largest Lemonade Stand – in a 1,300 gallon custom-built Rosenwach water tank and a reincarnation of the West Side Cowboy from the Federation of Black Cowboys. The event is free and will take place rain or shine.
