The High Line at the Rail Yards, between 11th Avenue and 34th Street, will be closed through Wednesday, May 6, 2015, for repairs to the Interim Walkway. Thank you for your patience.

Art of Noise: Musical Destruction on the High Line

Trains stopped running on the High Line in 1980, but it turns out the party was far from over. We direct you to the amazing Art of Noise video for the 1984 single "Close (To the Edit)."
