On Saturday, October 26, 2,500 kids and adults joined us for the third-annual Haunted High Line Halloween celebration. Families came in costume to enjoy art activities, music, and “real” High Line ghosts stationed from Little West 12th to 17th Streets. The celebration drew on the spooky history of Manhattan’s west side, where dark factories loomed and dangerous freight trains ruled “Death Avenue.”

We'd like to thank the students of the School of Visual Arts' Interior Design program for creating out first haunted train tunnel!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the High Line. We’ve been so busy with recovery from Hurricane Sandy that we haven’t yet had a chance to share photos and stories from our favorite fall community event: Haunted High Line Halloween.

On Saturday, October 27, hundreds of families brought their Halloween spirit to the High Line for a spooky scavenger hunt, tasty treats, a dress-up photo booth, a pop-up pumpkin patch, face painting, live jazz and swing music, and more.

Join us after the jump for more photos and details about the event.
