Stargazing on the High Line
On Tuesday nights from April through October, when dusk rolls around, members of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York head to the High Line with their high-powered telescopes, made available to the public. This is a great time for stargazing newbies to learn a thing or two about studying the sky, since the group is always willing to lend a helping hand to participants of all ages. The event takes place from 6:30 to 9:30pm between Little West 12th and West 14th Streets. Stargazing is weather permitting, so make sure to call 212-206-9922 or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.
The Association also sets up in Prospect Park, Van Cortlandt Park, Floyd Bennett Field and Carl Schurz Park, among other locations, so check aaa.org for more opportunities to stargaze.
