How to propose on the High Line
The High Line (also known as High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail. The park runs from Gansevoort Street – three blocks below 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District – through Chelsea to the northern edge of the West Side Yard on 34th Street near the Javits Center. Opens 7 am to 7pm (10pm during the summer).
Why is it good for the proposals? The park has an incredible scenery to the Hudson River, one of the best places to catch up the sunset. Also this park has numerous secret spots and urban designs that look stunning on the pictures.
What you need to know before planning your proposal there.
- The park closes at 7 pm (10 pm during the summer), so you need to plan around this time.
- No dogs are allowed in the park.
- If you want to have any decorations (flowers, marry me sign, candles) you need to get the permit from the park (around $150 – 200).
- You can not walk on the grass, green parts of the park.
- If you planning to have a photographer you also might need a permit. The park is very heavily regulated.
- No alcohol is allowed, except the restaurant area.
Why we think its a good spot?
The High Line park is not as popular as the Central Park, so your girlfriend will definitely not suspect that you planning something there. Park has a very different looks, so the pictures are more interesting. Also, for the sunset it is definitely ‘must go’ place.
