The spooky season is upon us and where better to spend these cool fall days than on the High Line! The famed and favorite walkway is celebrating Halloween by hosting a slew of great events for all ages in the next coming weeks. From pumpkin picking to haunted houses, there is something for everyone to enjoy this season at the High Line.
The High Line Pumpkin Patch will be ripe for the picking this Saturday, October 22nd from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Visitors can enter at the Chelsea Market Passage near West 15th Street and hand pick their own pumpkin to either decorate on the spot with provided materials or to take home to carve.
For those looking for a eerier experience, an art installation aptly named Haunt Room, by Sue de Beer will do the trick. On view from October 26th to December 4th, Haunt Room is a small space where visitors seem to be standing in silence while infrasound and audio below the human level of hearing is played. The artist is interested in how these sounds beyond our threshold provoke creepy feelings like chills, dizziness, and a that strange sense of another presence. Visitors can find Haunt Room at the West 14th Street entrance.
Families are welcome to join in on the first ever High Line Halloween Parade on October 30th. Admission is free and anyone who would like to march in the parade can meet at the seating steps at 12:00 p.m. The march will end at the High Line porch where face painting, spooky tunes, and refreshments will be waiting.
Admission to each event is free and there is no need to RSVP. Happy Haunting!
