Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost? It’s free.

When are the best times to visit? Head out on weekday mornings right after it opens—7am year-round—to maximize your quiet time. Of course, it’s enjoyable to be on the High Line when the sun sets, but it will also be more crowded.

Is there anywhere to eat? Blue Bottle offers espresso and other artisanal coffee options, along with food. Melt Bakery, with its homemade ice-cream sandwiches, is also a popular destination. Other food vendors include People’s Pops, the Taco Truck and La Sonrisa, which makes empanadas. Most can be found in the High Line’s Chelsea Market Passage, a covered section between 15th and 16th Streets.

Can I see outer space from the High Line? Of course! On Tuesdays from April through October, the Amateur Astronomers Association hosts free stargazing sessions on the High Line. Visit for more info and specific times. Friends of the High Line also organizes events including dance gatherings, video screenings and wellness activities like tai chi sessions.
