Partial re-opening: Crews have cleared the High Line's paths, and the park is open to the public between 16th and 23rd Streets. We are working to open the remainder of the park as soon as possible, as crews clear snow and ice from the park's pathways. Please check back or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.

Photo of the Week: "Falling" in Love

This week, a new HIGH LINE BILLBOARD was installed next to the High Line at West 18th Street. April’s installation features a cool-hued photograph by artist Ryan McGinley of a figure floating effortlessly through a vast blue background.

The levity of being and freeness evoked in the new installation complement the spring spirit at the park. As weather warms – slowly, but surely! – and new spring growth appears to the delight of visitors and High Line staff alike, the park is infused with the spirit of a new season ahead.

Photographer Timothy Schenck captured this photo of visitors in front of the new billboard earlier this week. Stop by before April 30 to see it yourself.
