Tuesday Tours of the High Line
The High Line (Chelsea Market Passage, on the High Line near W. 16th St., Manhattan)
Tours of the High Line are an excellent way to learn more about the park’s history, design, public artworks, and horticulture. Tours include information on the structure’s history, Friends of the High Line’s role in the preservation and reuse of the High Line as a public park. High Line tours typically last approximately one hour, and are wheelchair accessible.
Because the High Line is elevated and exposed to the elements, please be aware that weather conditions can be different than on the street-level. If it is hot, it is possible that it will be hotter on the High Line. If it is cold and windy, it may likely be colder and windier on the High Line. Therefore, it is important that you are dressed appropriately.
During September and October, Friends of the High Line offers a free, guided walking tour every Tuesday. Walking tours are led by High Line Docents — volunteers with expertise on the High Line’s history, design, horticulture, art, and more.
Tuesday Tours are free, but space is limited to 40 people. Please arrive early to guarantee a spot. The tour begins promptly at 6:30pm.
