Beginning on Monday, December 14, the High Line will be open daily from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

The High Line will remain open year-round. Late fall and winter is a great time to visit the High Line. We encourage you to come up and experience the changing landscape of the park in all seasons.

For someone who lives in Bayside, Queens, it's quite the feat to become one of our "High Line Regulars" – folks that come to enjoy the park on a regular basis, or in Clifton's case, nearly every single day! Huddled together in the Chelsea Market Passage on a breezy fall day, Clifton and I became acquainted over sips of hot chocolate.

JB: How did you first hear of the High Line?

 CC: I have lived in New York my whole life, and first knew the High Line from walking under it, coming to the Chelsea galleries. But my love affair began in 2005 when I was a part of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, and their program for students was called 'Redesign the High Line'. Our idea, funny enough, was a park. Our group wasn't as outlandish as some of the other ones, but we wanted to bring back remnants of the old train line – bring old subway cars up and use them as cafés.  I've been talking about it ever since. I love it.

Now through December 11th in the Chelsea Market Passage, you'll find Organicoa – organic, sustainably-grown, pure hot cocoa.

Founders Matthew Pek and Brett Nidel created Organicoa especially for the High Line.  Each cup of Organicoa's hot cocoa is crafted with Dagoba cocoa beans (which are sourced through sustainable cacao farms), organic vegan cane sugar, and locally sourced organic milk.  Their cups, lids, and sleeves are made from recycled and compostable materials.

We recommend grabbing a cup and enjoying it on the sundeck.

Yesterday, the High Line staff celebrated Thanksgiving early with a farewell potluck in honor of our seasonal staff (a sample of the myriad of delicious dishes is pictured above).  High Line gardeners Au'brey Gill, Meg Graham, and Maryanne Stubbs will part from us during the dormant winter months.

The new 14th Street elevator is now open (and beautiful).  Next time you visit the High Line, give it a try--you'll be transported from street level to High Line level by way of a vivid yellow-green car. It's just to the West of the High Line stairs on 14th Street.

If you've visited the High Line recently, you've probably noticed planting areas marked with red and blue flags.  We've been getting a lot of questions about them.  Their purpose is simple – not for marking pesticides; not for quarantine; not for targeting removal – we're doing an inventory.

If the 5:00 darkness is making you want to crawl into bed until April, it may be time for a walk on the High Line, where the colorful blooms and fall foliage are still going strong!
