Things to Know Before You Visit the High Line

The High Line is now open! We hope you'll visit us in the coming days and weeks. Before you come to the High Line, there are a few things you should know:

Location: The High Line is located on the West Side of Manhattan. The first section runs from Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, to West 20th Street, in Chelsea, between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues.

Getting There by Subway or Bus: A/C/E/L to 14th Street and 8th Avenue; M14 bus to 14th Street and 9th Avenue.

Access Points: Because of the large number of visitors we expect in this initial opening period, we ask that visitors enter from the Gansevoort Access Point, located at Gansevoort and Washington Streets, unless you are in need of an elevator. Elevator access is located at 16th Street. You may exit the park at any of the access points. Section 1 access points are located at:

  • Gansevoort Street
  • 14th Street (Elevator access will be available beginning in July.)
  • 16th Street (elevator access)
  • 18th Street
  • 20th Street
Please note that after our initial opening period, all access points will serve as both entrances and exits.

Dogs, bicycles, and rollerblades are not permitted. For a complete listing of park rules, please visit our
Park Information page.

Photography: Photography is permitted for personal and journalistic use only. There are currently no permits being issued for commercial shoots on the High Line due to anticipated high volume of visitors in our opening season.
