Stop by The Lot this week to eat, drink, and skate. Sunday, September 25 is the final day The Lot on Tap and the High Line Rink are open. The Lot was always envisioned as a single season amenity to celebrate the new section of the High Line. Following Sunday's closure, we expect the site’s owners, The Related Companies and Abington Properties, will begin preparing the site for future development. We are grateful to The Related Companies and Abington Properties for donating the space for use this summer.

Beginning Monday, September 19, 2011, part of the upper level of the 10th Avenue Square will be closed due to maintenance work that will last approximately four weeks. During this time, crews will be working to reinforce the 10th Avenue Square’s wood decking with new hardware. The Sunken Overlook and a pathway over the upper level of the 10th Avenue Square will remain open for the duration of the project, allowing the public to continue to pass through the space.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back for updates or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter.

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.

Please check back or follow the High Line on Twitter for future updates on park operations.

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 that were recently planted were uprooted by the winds, but the majority of the park's plants and all of the utilities and architectural features are intact.

The High Line will remain closed on Sunday, August 28, 2011 to allow crews to continue to assess the park for damage. We anticipate a delayed opening on Monday, August 29, 2011 to allow crews to clear loose debris and restore the park to a safe and welcoming condition. Please check back, or follow the High Line on Facebook or Twitter for updates on the opening of the park, The Lot on Tap, and the High Line Rink.

Due to anticipated weather associated with Hurricane Irene, the High Line will be closed on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, 2011. All public programs planned at the High Line this weekend are cancelled. The Lot, The Lot on Tap, and the High Line Rink will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, August 26, 2011 to allow crews to prepare the site for the inclement weather, and remain closed on Saturday and Sunday.

Hurricane Irene is expected to hit New York City Saturday night, and it has the potential to make parks and open spaces unsafe during and after the storm. Mayor Bloomberg has advised, “Because of the high winds that will accompany the storm, we are urging all New Yorkers for their own safety to stay out of parks where the high winds will increase the danger of downed trees and limbs."

We anticipate re-opening of the park, The Lot, The Lot on Tap, and the High Line Rink on Monday. Please check back for updates or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter.

In case of emergency, please call 911. To report any incidences, call 311. For information and updates on weather and ways to stay safe during the hurricane, visit www.nyc.gov/severeweather or call 311.
