New York City’s famed landmarks are slowly reopening with the rest of the city. The High Line is set to reopen on Thursday, July 16. The park, built on a closed railway between multiple midtown high rises, will offer free timed-entry passes on its web page beginning July 9. The High Line will allow entry to the park based on social distancing guidelines. Daily hours of operation during the reopening phase will be from noon – 8 pm daily.
The High Line, which closed in March during the height of the pandemic, is asking that visitors wear a mask while on the premises. The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. Saved from demolition by neighborhood residents and the City of New York, the High Line opened in 2009 as a hybrid public space where visitors experience nature, art, and design.
More information about the High Line is available at its website or via mobile app.
