The AAA began its weekly observing sessions on the High Line on August 25th, 2009. We’ve gone up every week since then, except for a break during the winter months of November through March, and the inevitable cancellations due to overcast skies.
The High Line extends from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street. Our current observation location is at Little W 12th Street at Washington Street (south of the Standard Hotel). You can enter the park at any one of these entrances/exits:
Gansevoort Street (with elevator access)
14th Street (with elevator access)
16th Street (with elevator access)
23rd Street (with elevator access)
30th Street (with elevator access)
34th Street & 12th Avenue (with ramp access)
The High Line itself is open from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM starting April 1st. During the warmer months of June, July, August, and September, the park stays open until 11:00. AAA observing takes place from dusk until 15 minutes before closing. When the waxing Moon is in the evening sky, we often begin our observing sessions a little before sunset.
