area for the Highline, it has been
converted into an outdoor amphitheater/

areas of the highline. Located only a few
hundred feet from an elevator, this area
includes ADA compliant access.

Featuring a window that looks down 10th

and a vantage point previously
unprecedented on the highline.

WOODLAND FLYOVER
HIGHLINE MANHATTAN
The Woodland Flyover is a segment of Section II in
the Highline. The objective of this amenity is to bring the
user up eight feet into the canopy of the landscape. The
Woodland Flyover extends from 24th street to 27th street
and is complete with several sitting areas, one access point
by stair (26th St.), and the Viewing Spur. The viewing Spur
is located over 26th street and acts as a faux-billboard of
pedestrians and viewports, it is to commemorate the past
advertisements that were a part of the pre-Highline.
