Partial re-opening: Crews have cleared the High Line's paths, and the park is open to the public between 16th and 30th Streets. We are working to open the remainder of the park as soon as possible. Please check back or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.

As we speak, snow is blanketing New York City.

High Line Maintenance and Operations staff are readying their shovels, snow brooms, and ice picks for the estimated 10–14 inches of snow that the city will be receiving in the next 24 hours. Tomorrow, while most of us are still sleeping, they will begin clearing the High Line's pathway and stairs in order to open the park to the public as soon as possible. For the first time, our staff will be joined by dedicated Snow Volunteers who will help us complete this huge task.

While snow means more work at the High Line, it also means more fun! With enough accumulation anticipated, we’ll be holding a High Line Snow Sculpt-Off tomorrow from 2:30 – 4:00 PM. Our photo of the week this week is one of our favorites from our last Snow Sculpt-Off in 2011, by High Line Photographer Karen Blumberg, showing a snowman greeting High Line visitors. Your imagination is the limit during the Snow Sculpt-Off, when adults and families compete to create snow masterpieces.

We hope you’ll join us!
