Haunted High Line Halloween
Haunted High Line Halloween
Come in costume to trick-or-treat with characters from the High Line’s industrial past. Sneak through a haunted train tunnel (if you dare!), get lost in a hay-bale maze, dance to a ditty, decorate a pumpkin from our pumpkin patch, and construct your own train car from recycled materials.
Pose for pictures in a dress-up photo booth, complete with a view of the High Line’s historic past and the 18-foot High Line Ghost Train made by local children and puppet master Ralph Lee.
We hope you'll join us at our largest family event of the year!
