      I'm all for parties and getting the info out there for people to care about but weren't you supposed to build a park at some point ? Or have you become pseudo celebs to cool for work

      Now that you are selling TShirts and other items I am wondering if we are going to be able to exchange our original Kickstarter shirts? I was one of those whose shirts were extremely small, I ordered a Large shirt and the one I received, marked Large, would fit my tiny 12 year old niece.

      Hi! I hope it is going well.
      I'm wondering if you will send the tote bag?

      Hey Brett -- your name is here -- that's where all the names are. I figured I'd go check, as my heart goes out to the people putting this project together -- it is SO ambitious -- when you realize the Highline has raised 350 milllion dollars -- you start to realize what this group is up against. And, they're working with the City of NY, and underground.

      I never got my t-shirt, and they never replied back to me, I heard a lot of people did not receive their reward, any update on this? Thank you

    6. Musictwig on

      Just checking in, as I have not received my button yet.

      A few points:

      My name ("Brett Nieland") did not show up on the website.

      There is no obvious contact information on the site.

      A running donation, especially with dates at which each 5k of the goal were reached would give some sense of the support the project is getting, inspiring people to donate.

      More communication! Even details you do not find significant will add to backers sense of being part of the project; otherwise one gets the feeling that you took the money and wasted it on Skittles.

      I received my T-Shirt yesterday and it is tiny. I always get a Mens Large and this Mens Large looks like maybe a childs Large. Is there any way to exchange it for one that fits.

      I received my gift today for backing the project and have a couple of comments. 1) The coupon for the Tenement Museum expires in 9 days, June 27th, and is not valid on Saturdays. I live in Washington, D.C. and probably wont be able to make it to NYC in 9 days. I would have like to see a longer expiration date on the coupon. 2) I would have liked to see the T-shirt designed through a USA-made t-shirt company (American Apparel or similar). Thanks.

    12. Eli Katz on

      Agreed. Anything happening ??

    13. Andrew on

      Mens Medium please

    14. Laird Popkin

      Even though I'm not in NYC any more, I'm very excited about the project, happy to have contributed, and I'd love to see pictures posted as the design and building of the park progresses.

      For the T-shirt size. men's XL. Thanks!

      Congratulations! Size small for me, please.

    18. Neasa Martin on

      Congratulations! No spot on the form to tell you the Tshirt size - Men's large please.

    19. Andrew Sand on

      There was no spot on the form for t-shirt size. Men's medium for me. Thanks!

    20. Michael Hossen on

      Medium tee please.

    21. Eli Katz on

      Also didn't enter t-shirt size in address form.

      Men's Adult Large please.


    22. Elisa Ellsworth on

      T- shirt size is in the extra space of address....Smiles, Elisa

    23. smile from The Lower East Side on

      I had the same issue a lot people seem to, no space to enter t-shirt size on the survey. I'll take an Adult Small/Medium. Congrats on the funding. Looking forward to seeing how the project develops — smile

    24. Christine Black-Reimel on

      Congratulaions on the funding!!! I'm so glad this is happening. I put my T-shirt size in one of the extra address fields.

    25. Kirsten Haugen on

      So glad this got funded. I live in Oregon, and only get to NY on occasion, but it's so worth it to know a project like this can really happen.

    26. Anittah Patrick on

      @Jennifer, that's a great idea re: a round two possible schwag item.

      FYI: for those whose backing includes a tee shirt, I hacked the "name" field of the form and input my shirt size there bracketed with parentheses.

      Hugs to all y'all!! xo

    27. Carl Gilchrist

      Ditto. No space for t-shirt size, or what name to appear as backer.

    28. Nicholas Coblence on

      SO happy about this!!

    29. Danny Alexander on

      Just filled out my mailing address, but there was no option for the t-shirt size?

    30. Darren Hupke on

      I don't live in NY, I have never been to NY, but I gave you my support! If me and my wife can get to NY in the future to celebrate our LATE honeymoon, I look forward to checking it out!

    32. Jennifer L on

      Sorry, meant cost of a book would have been minimal -- the impact, amazing :) Am looking forward to your next round of fundraising! Congrats on hitting the goal

    33. Jennifer L on

      I wish you'd have done some kind of limited edition screen print, or a book of the project notes -- something other than the t-shirt, tote bag reward. Cost for a book (self-publish somewhere) with your notes, plans, etc. would have been amazing ... and I would have been much more willing to part with 100 for that over the other swag.

    34. Gilbert Farmers Market on

      Some great forward thinking!

      When do you mail out the T-shirts?


    36. Brett on

      Alright guys, every day since I have backed this project I've been checking it in hopes to see them hit their 150k goal. I think it's a great project, and a very small margin to close. I realized that instead of looking towards others to do this it would I would up my pledge 20 bucks. This is next to nothing, but every bit helps! I challenge anyone that has already backed this, to increase theirs by $10... if a 1/8th of you guys did that, they would hit $150,000 easily. Lets make it happen!

    37. Adam E Ornstein on

      This is a cool project, Let us know if we can come preview the. Space, or even help out

      I can't wait 'till phase 2. I think many many of us will be happy to contribute to the full scale project. It would be wonderful if we could fund the whole thing online!

      You guys should hook up with these guys and recycle the water that goes through the park, hell maybe even include a pool or small waterpark:…
