Family Programs

Children’s Workyard Kit

At every High Line Kids program, you will also find this mobile crate of building materials. Inspired by the park's industrial history and aesthetic character, our Workyard Kit is designed to help kids chart their own course of play on the High Line. Stop by to use custom-designed wood planks, wheels, ropes, gears, and pulleys to create your own construction. Ages 4+

Haunted High Line

Travel back in time to the industrial west side of Manhattan!

Over 150 years ago, freight trains ran along the street along us. As New York City grew, the trains became so dangerous for pedestrians that residents called 10th Avenue "Death Avenue." The High Line was built in the 1930s to elevate the trains and make the streets safer.

Once a year, ghosts from Death Avenue's past rise to haunt the High Line. Join us each October for Haunted High Line, a day of family friendly activities including a photo booth, face painting, dancing, music, live performances, ghosts, and more!
