Winter Lights on the High Line: 7am to 7pm Daily, Through January 2, 2003, between West 15th & 16th Streets in the Chelsea Market Passage | You’ve got to be elevated, to get in on the ground level of this new, multiyear Holiday Season lighting installation brought to the popular West Chelsea park via a partnership between the High Line and Genesis Motor America. The 2022 debut installment incorporates “mirrors and reflective surfaces to create a captivating light display for visitors to enjoy anytime during park open hours.” Every hour on the hour there’s a two-minute light show, with the final show of the day (at 6pm) offering a supercharged version whose visual intensity is akin to the grand finale of a fireworks display.
