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 AAA observes on the High Line, near 14th street, every Tuesday evening, from the beginning of April through the end of October.
