High Line in New York City to Reopen on July 16, 2020 with Unidirectional Flow & Reservations

High Line in New York City to Reopen on July 16

With UniDirectional Flow & Reservations

That which follows on this page comes courtesy of the High Line Newsletter. We’re very happy to be hearing the news that they’ll be opening soon. It would be 10 days following our acquiring of Phase 3 status here in the Big Apple.

Note how timed reservations and pedestrian flow in one direction will be put to use. Yours truly has proposed the use of timed reservations for the reopening of Governors Island and I’ve also suggested unidirectional flow to Mayor de Blasio for use in Street Fairs. No, the Mayor’s take me up on my suggestions. ūüėČ

Yet, if the High Line can open up then perhaps there’s hope for Governors Island, Street Fairs and other outside venues and events.

Exciting news! The High Line will reopen on Thursday, July 16. Our team has worked closely with our partners at NYC Parks to safely welcome you again, every day from 12 noon to 8pm.

Weeks ago on March 16, we closed as COVID-19 struck our city, because social distancing was not possible on our narrow paths and stairways. We hope that the High Line‚Äôs reopening will showcase our city‚Äôs resilience and the High Line‚Äôs commitment to New York City‚Äôs revival. But COVID-19 is still spreading across the country‚ÄĒin order to reopen the High Line safely, we‚Äôve had to develop new visitor guidelines.

Free Timed Entry

  • To make social distancing possible, we must limit visitor numbers in a park that previously hosted over 8 million visitors annually.
  • The simplest way to enter and minimize your wait is to¬†reserve a free timed-entry pass at¬†thehighline.org/welcome.
  • Timed-entry reservations will begin one week in advance of our reopening, on Thursday, July 9, at 10am.
  • The first set of reservations will be available for time slots on Thursday, July 16, through Sunday, July 26, from noon to 8pm. After that, reservations will be opened every two weeks on Mondays, starting July 20, for an additional two weeks.
  • A limited number of walk-up passes will be available at the entrance, but to reduce wait time, please sign up for a free timed-entry pass in advance.

Traffic flows only in one direction, starting at Gansevoort Street

  • All visitors must enter at the southern end of the High Line, at Gansevoort Street and Washington Street,¬†and move northwards. One-directional movement is essential for social distancing on narrow paths and stairs.
  • In this first reopening phase, the High Line will be open to 23rd Street. Stay tuned to our emails and follow @highlinenyc on¬†Instagram,¬†Twitter, and¬†Facebook¬†for updates on reopening plans north of 23rd Street.
  • Stairs at 14th, 16th, 17th, 20th, and 23rd Streets will be exit-only¬†(as will elevators at 14th and 23rd Streets, except for people with mobility access needs; the 16th Street elevator is currently unavailable.) All access points north of 23rd Street will be closed. If you try to enter at these locations, signage will direct you to the Gansevoort Street entry.

Safety Guidelines
The same safety protocols necessary for the reopening of any public place apply to the High Line.

  • Wear a mask or face covering.
  • Maintain 6-foot distance between people not in the same household.
  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Do not touch your face.

Limited Amenities

  • Food vendors and the High Line Shop will be closed.
