The third section of the High Line, from 30th to 34th Streets, will be closed to park visitors from Tuesday, February 9, to Tuesday, February 23, due to an ongoing construction project. The High Line between 30th and Gansevoort Streets will remain accessible to visitors during this time.

Wet is Beautiful

Dreary weather in the city is an opportunity to experience the High Line in an altogether different way. If you're bold enough  to venture up despite the rain, you'll be rewarded with stillness, solitude, and strange beauty as surfaces sparkle and plant colors pop.

 Going up on a rainy night is still another adventure – we love this photo set taken Friday night by landscape photographer Rick Darke. The wet grasses are luminous, and the surrounding skyline and streets below show vibrant streaky colors.
