Update on Park Entrances
If you visited the park in our first couple of weeks, you may have been told to enter using the Gansevoort access point. This early limited access was part of our strategy to handle the anticipated heavy crowds on the park initially.
You can now enter and exit the park at all access points (Gansevoort stairs, 14th Street stairs, 16th street stairs and elevator, 18th street stairs, and 20th street stairs).
However, in the event that we reach capacity, we will once again limit entrance to the Gansevoort access point (or 16th Street if you require an elevator). This is most likely to happen on the weekends, during peak hours of 1:00 to 4:00. So far, this has only occurred on two occasions on the weekends, and has resulted in lines of 10 to 30 minutes.
Most visitors who encountered the lines still had a wonderful experience in the park, and recognized that the brief wait was necessary in order to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all visitors and to prevent damage to the park's delicate landscape.
We hope that you will take the opportunity to visit the High Line, as more than 100,000 visitors have already!
