Haunted High Line Halloween
High Line between 15th & 17th, Manhattan
Come in costume for a day of free community festivities in celebration of the fall season.
Bring the kids and join us for face painting, live 1930s-style music, pumpkin decorating, dress-up photos with take-home prints, and a fun and spooky scavenger hunt featuring characters from the High Line’s industrial past.
Follow clues to meet the meatpackers, train engineers, West Side Cowboys, and other historical characters who will be giving out tasty treats. To begin the scavenger hunt, pick up a guide from our information stations on the High Line at West 13th and West 17th Streets.
Stop by the Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck between West 14th and West 16th Streets to purchase a decorating pumpkin from Fulton Youth of the Future, a local non-profit community group that helps Chelsea teens gain career skills, or say hello to the High Line Youth Staff, a group of local teens employed by Friends of the High Line, who will be face painting flowers, butterflies, superhero, and other fun designs for kids.
You can also stop by the 10th Avenue Square at West 17th Street to see the High Line Ghost Train, a giant freight train made of recycled materials by puppet master Ralph Lee and students at Public Schools 3, 11, and 33 during the month of October as part of the High Line Teaching Artists Halloween Program.
