High Line Access Issues: Tours and Trespassing

FHL often gets requests for tours of the High Line’s elevated rail platform. FHL does not control access to the High Line, which is private property, owned and managed by CSX Corporation. Sometimes CSX will allow FHL to bring a community-based group or a civic organization on the Line. If you represent a local community group or civic organization that wants to tour a portion of the Line, please contact Justin Rood; (212) 631-9188 or via e-mail at: justin@thehighline.org. Unfortunately we cannot offer tours to individuals, student groups, or those entering the design competition.

About trespassing: In the last few weeks, there has been an increase in illegal trespassing on the Line. Accessing the Line without CSX permission is illegal, and we’ve heard reports of numerous ticketings and arrests. FHL urges its supporters in the strongest terms not to trespass in this manner. Trespassing on the Line threatens FHL’s working relationship with CSX, which in turn may threaten our long-term ability to open the Line to full and complete public access. Help us save the High Line and open it to the public: Don’t trespass.
