Photo of the Week: Sunny Bench

Given the rainy streak New Yorkers have endured in the past few weeks, it’s hard to believe that the official beginning of summer is just around the corner.

As a reminder of the warmer days ahead, this week’s Photo of the Week by photographer Eddie Crimmins captures a quiet summer moment on the High Line. This west-facing bench at West 24th Street invites visitors to take respite from the city’s hustle and bustle, and soak in the sun with a friend or a good book.

The warm days to come are also bringing back many iconic High Line events! Join us for a taste of summer with a wide variety of programs that are free and open to all ages.

Stargaze with the Amateur Astronomers Association, dance to some live Latin music by Orlando Marin, the Last Mambo King, or take a walking tour of the park – all happening this next week! On Friday, June 21, the evening of the summer solstice, sit amongst the greenery on the High Line at Little West 12th Street to experience Crickets, a High Line Art performance piece by artist Mungo Thompson, inspired by the melodies of nature’s tiniest musicians.

Learn more about these and other events.
