Park update: the High Line between 30th St. and 10th Ave. and 34th St. is closed due to snow and ice. The rest of the park is open.

Close Alert

Film & Photo Shoots

We welcome film & photo shoots in the park. The High Line is able to accommodate small-scale shoots (see guidelines below) as long as they do not negatively impact visitor flow or park operations. Large-scale shoots may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.

Small shoot guidelines
  • Shooting cannot inhibit the High Line’s normal activity in any way. This means that crews cannot block the paths, enter the plant beds, or exert any exclusive use of the space.
  • Shoots must fall within the High Line’s operating hours.
  • Restricting the mobility or behavior of members of the public is prohibited. Anyone who engages in aggressive or demanding actions toward the public will be immediately required to leave the park.
  • Requiring members of the public passing around your shoot to sign release forms is prohibited.
  • For safety reasons, shooting on the staircases and in elevators is prohibited.
  • Due to space limitations, the park’s operations schedule, and high levels of visitation at the High Line, you must scale down the size of your crew as much as possible to avoid inadvertently blocking the path and creating a public safety hazard. (No more than 10 people, including on-camera talent and crew).
  • The High Line can only accommodate small film & photo shoots with minimal equipment. Any equipment or props (with the exception of one tripod) must be handheld. Equipment and props may not be placed in the High Line’s delicate plant beds or rested against railings or signs.
  • Equipment carts, dollies, light stands, props, makeup bags, sound boxes, catering tables, and other stationary equipment are not permitted on the High Line during small-scale film and photo shoots.
  • Drones are not permitted on the High Line (or in any New York City park).
