You can also do some stargazing with the Amateur Astronomers Association from 7:30 pm onwards.

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition. It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy.

High Line Art presents Archeo, a new outdoor group exhibition installed throughout the park. Featuring sculptures and installations that range from rusty railways to high-tech refrigerators, Archeo treats the High Line as an archeological dig where the artifacts of a post-industrial society can be unearthed. The exhibition will be on view through March 2015.
