Photo of the Week: Night Falls on the High Line

Summer means long, hot (or rainy, as it seems recently) days and longer evening hours on the High Line. This throwback image by photographer Jake Marsiglia captures the essence of a summer night on the High Line: a visitor takes in the New York City night sky while enjoying the cool breeze that sweeps over the park after the sun sets.

The High Line is open daily until 11:00 PM all summer, so stop by after a hot day for a stroll or to enjoy one of the many events we offer during the evenings. One of our favorite summer activities is gazing at the constellations through high-powered telescopes during Tuesday night Stargazing. Weekly through October, the Amateur Astronomers Association provides High Line visitors a chance to look through powerful telescopes to view stars and planets not always visible to the naked eye.

Learn more about our weekly Stargazing program.
