We’re pleased to inform you that the 23rd Street elevator has reopened to the public as of June 27.

During Hurricane Sandy, salt water from the Hudson River surged to 10th Avenue, completely flooding the underground vault below the High Line that powers the elevator. The extensive damage caused by the salt water necessitated a full rebuild of the elevator’s systems. The elevator’s new, upgraded systems will bring improved and more reliable service to the public.

The elevator’s reconstruction process was a top priority for Friends of the High Line and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, and Friends of the High Line will continue to monitor the elevator’s to address any further performance issues as quickly as possible.

We are grateful for your support, assistance, guidance, and patience through the elevator’s reconstruction.
