Park Update: High Line Is Now Open

EnlargeHigh Line Aerial

The High Line is now open. The Lot on Tap and the High Line Rink will be open starting at 4:00 PM. Crews spent the morning clearing loose debris, replanting uprooted shrubs, testing the utilities and elevators, returning the mobile chairs, tables, trash receptacles, and food vendor carts to the park, and restoring the park and The Lot to a safe and welcoming condition.

The High Line is in great shape despite the high winds and heavy rains brought by Hurricane Irene. In the Gansevoort Woodland and planting beds near the 14th Street Passage, several small saplings were uprooted by the winds, but the majority of the park's plants and all of the utilities and architectural features are intact. The Lot on Tap and the High Line Rink sustained no major damage.
