Opening the High Line after Sunday's Blizzard
Prepping the High Line for opening after Sunday's blizzard was no easy feat. Our Maintenance & Operations staff arrived at 4:30 AM this morning, before daylight, and worked to clear the park's pathways and entrances until mid-morning. Because of the strong winds yesterday, they were unable to begin work until early today.
While we're able to use snow blowers in the wider areas of the park, in narrow areas, and on all the staircases, the snow must be shoveled by hand. With almost two feet from this storm, this was quite a task! Thank you to all the park staff who worked so hard to open the High Line this morning.
Now, we hope you'll come visit.
