For the fourth year, REI, one of the High Line’s longest partners, will close all 153 of its co-op locations on Black Friday. Instead of participating in the largest shopping day of the year, REI encourages everyone to #OptOutside by spending the day outdoors with family and friends.
REI believes that we spend our best moments outside together. That is why REI’s co-op pays their 12,000 employees on Black Friday to spend time outdoors with loved ones. Last year, over one million people chose to #OptOutside. We are excited to #OptOutside with REI again this year and hope you will too by joining us on the High Line.
Open from 7am to 10pm daily through the holiday weekend, the High Line has 20 blocks of public green space for you to explore.
Here are a few recommendations for making the most of your visit this week:
