Planning a visit to the High Line? Keep an eye out for the temporary stairs at the 14th Street access point.

Temporary changes to High Line access at 14th Street will take place over the coming weeks due to construction of an adjacent building.

Earlier today we welcomed our 2,000,000th visitor to the High Line since the park opened to the public ten months ago.

To celebrate the occasion, and to mark the arrival of the very first spring on the High Line, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, City Planning Commission Chair Amanda Burden, and Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe joined Co-Founder Joshua David to plant a flowering eastern redbud tree (Cercis Canadensis) in the Gansevoort Woodland.

Our lucky 2,000,000th (and 2,000,001st!) visitors were Lexi and Zach Hauser, from Raleigh, North Carolina. This was the first trip to the High Line for Lexi and Zach, who were joined by their mother, Deb, and their family friend, Richard Conolly, a native New Yorker and Chelsea resident. The gang helped plant the new tree and received some very special commemorative gifts: a framed photo of the High Line and limited edition High Line beach towels designed by Diane von Furstenberg.

Tune in to PBS tonight for the television premiere of "NY Export: Opus Jazz", a contemporary film version of groundbreaking choreographer Jerome Robbins' 1958 ballet. The film, which was created, produced, and danced by members of the New York City Ballet, follows the young dancers to abandoned urban locations around New York City. The ballet's spectacular "Passage for Two" was shot at sunset on the High Line at the rail yards.
