Looking to entertain the little ones?
Join The Friends of The High Line on Saturday, October 29th from 11a-3p, for a Haunted High Line Halloween: Travel back in time and learn the history of the High Line. Get into character with artistic face painting, capture memories with our old-time photo booth, go on a scavenger hunt, dance, and watch live performances. And definitely don't miss out on the Magical Biscuit Company in the Chelsea Market Passage: What was it like to make thousands of Oreos and Nabisco biscuits in the factories along the train tracks? Learn from a Magical Biscuit Company worker! Then get your face painted by Agostino Arts.
