WE DID IT! HIGH LINE OPENS!

Just moments ago, we stood with Mayor Bloomberg, Speaker Quinn, Borough President Stringer, Congressman Nadler, and other leaders and supporters and cut the ribbon on the High Line, officially opening the first section to the public. This historic day is the culmination of ten years of advocacy, planning and construction, and we're so grateful to everyone who has helped make this opening possible.

We expect many visitors from the neighborhood, from across New York City, and from around the world to come get a first glimpse in our opening season. We hope you will visit us in the coming days and weeks, and see for yourself the beautiful, one-of-a-kind new park you have helped us build. When you come up for the first time, remember that the landscape is still young, and it will continue to evolve through its first season and beyond. We hope it becomes a place you'll want to return to again and again.

PLEASE NOTE: If you plan on visiting us in the next few days, please plan on entering the High Line through the Gansevoort Street access point. You will be able to exit the park through any of its access points.

For more information, please call the High Line Information Line: (212) 500-6035
