Things to Know Before You Visit the High Line — Updated Access Information

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: Access to the High Line is now possible via any of the access points listed below. In the event the High Line becomes too crowded, you may be asked to enter via the Gansevoort Street stairs (or 16th Street elevator if you need elevator service) only, to ensure public safety and the safety of the park itself.

  • Gansevoort Street
  • 14th Street (Elevator access will be available beginning in July.)
  • 16th Street (elevator access)
  • 18th Street
  • 20th Street


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.
