Haunted High Line

Chelsea Free

There’s something uniquely New York about this part of the city. Built on an abandoned railway track, the space is ingenious in its use of reclaimed industrial detritus, a necessity in footage-starved Manhattan. But what we like best is how the pathway takes you above the city while keeping you rooted in urban life: Where else can your kids walk through a field of wildflowers or go on a bug hunt as cabs zoom along the street below? The park boasts plenty of fun events for the kiddos in July and August such as Arty Hours, an arts and crafts program on Saturdays and Lawn Time on Thursday mornings where you can kick back and enjoy magicians and musical performers. Watch out for the Haunted High Line Halloween where ghosts and ghouls from the historical railway visit the park. This celebration of the spooky holiday involves activities like face painting, pumpkin decorating and a scavenger hunt. The last section of the park, the High Line at the Rail Yards, is scheduled to debut this year.
