If you're from anywhere but New York City, "stargazing" probably means something different to you. A clearing, even if it's a parking lot, with a sky full of stars, maybe. 

Here, stargazing means craning your neck and sometimes seeing one or two– oh, nevermind that's a plane. 

While we have green spaces, like the park, where it's a little easier to see the skies, you can't exactly go traipsing into Central Park in the middle of the night to go look at the stars. Another option is the High Line on Tuesdays, where they've held stargazing events at dusk since April.

Now that we're in full Pumpkin Spice weather, however, it's been colder and foggier– so the last stargazing event of the season will be tomorrow, October 25th.

The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York provides high-powered telescopes, which is nice since the view of the heavens from NYC is not that great as is.

Stargazing at the High Line is free to the public and there's no need to RSVP. You can join up with them at The Diller-von Furstenberg Sundeck at West 14th Street. 


Sure, they're probably going to resume this popular program in 2017 but you should take advantage of the chance to view the sight of the stars above NYC before the sky turns that perpetual grey that doesn't leave until like March.


While their Summer hours are ending, there's still going to be plenty to do at the High Line all season long. Don't forget to check out the High Line's family Halloween party on the 29th!
