    Love the architecture!
    What an amazing walk! The landscape is beautiful, the surrounding architecture is inspiring....what a wonderful afternoon. Take the time to visit Little Island, the artificial park built in the Hudson River. The path takes you through a beautiful Chelsea neighborhood.

    Will Return After Peak Tourist Season
    Never miss a chance to walk The High Line when I am in the city and in the area. While we enjoyed our stroll along beautifully landscaped grounds and public art - Saturday afternoon in June was not an ideal day due to the crowds. The weather was glorious and seemed as though everyone had the same idea of walking The High Line!

    Pleasant walkway up to Hudson yards
    Nice walkway built on an old railway track running from the meatpacking district to hudson yards. We tied this in with lunch at Chelsea market (meatpacking district) followed by walking the high line to The Edge (hudson yards) which was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Although it can get busy at peak times, if you avoid this and go in the morning or later in the afternoon I’d imagine it would be less busy.

    Beautiful
    I took a tour around Chelsea, the High Line, and the Meatpacking District. Very much enjoyed it and the High Line is beautiful. I would suggest going early in the day. I went Saturday and by 11 am it was packed.

    Nice promenade in the city jungles
    It’s nice walk from the Vessel to Greenwich village. Cozy route with flowers and trees and good views on NY streets. There are cafes with drinks and snacks, ice cream on the route. Restrooms are located here as well.

    An urban Oasis
    We love this park in NYC, it's got a great combination of that urban grit of the city with an oasis like feel. I love how they have kept the industrial feel and history of the track whilst creating a space to escape the city from. The views from the trails are great too.

    A garden you can walk
    I love this trail because it offers a different perspective on surrounding architecture, but even more because the plants are always beautiful and interesting. I'm always learning, here. Also, the shade is refreshing. It does get crowded sometimes, and people seem to forget which side of the path to walk on.

    Nice greenspace in the heart of the city
    Busy with lots of folks but it is a slice of green in a mountain of concrete. Free, bring water and wear a hat.sunscreen on a hot day. Next time I will look at see if there are tours along the trail because there is so much history and architecture that is unique.

    Favorite NYC Experience
    Love this! One of my favorite parts of our NYC trip! So surreal to be walking this beautiful trail in the city. So many photo moments along the way with murals. We went from Hudson Yards to Chelsea Market.

    It's always a great experience to walk the High Line in Manhattan during nice weather.
    It's always a great experience to walk the High Line in Manhattan during nice weather. We walked from Hudson Yard to Chelsea Market. Besides being a nice walk on a summer's day, the Skyline is free.

What a great use for a derelict railway line. Some of the art along the route is a bit odd but keeps the walk interesting. I walked from Hudson Yard to Chelsea market which was really nice. Maybe not enough shaded areas for me as the Sun was quite intense that day but the whole walk felt peaceful which is always great to have in the middle of a city.

Spent a couple of hours here walking The High Line and people watching while my wife was in a business meeting. This place is amazing! I am fascinated by trains and this is an old train line. I love that they left some train paraphernalia and added lots of green space. A plethora of seating available as well. What a great concept. I hope other cities follow the lead and redevelop spaces like this. Highly recommended!

Fantastic place to walk! It’s a perfect way to get away from the typical big city and high traffic vibes. I love how the city turned this discontinued train tracks into this amazing walkable park. We’ve been here several times. The first time, we started at the Hudson Yard train station and ended at the vessel. The other time, we started at Chelsea Market area and walked all the way to the Vessel. Highly recommend! There is more to see and do inside the shopping mall at the Hudson Yard area. There is a train line to take you to or from the city.

We walked the High Line a couple of times. Great views, fun artworks along the way and beautiful gardens. It was a great way to see that part of New York.

Our hotel was located a few blocks from the center of the High Line, so we walked south one day and north another day. We walked the entire trail and loved every bit of it. The plantings are magnificent and some of the art work spectacular. We also enjoyed seeing the adjoining buildings up close. Someone really had great vision when they transformed this rail line into a wonderful pedestrian space.

A great way to walk around New York without worrying about transport. A very pleasurable stroll and places to stop for a coffee or bite to eat

This is such a lovely thing to do! We went last week - didn’t walk the entire thing but we did walk most it. It was a lovely day which helped, and it was a truly beautiful, peaceful oasis. Really pleased that we did it; will definitely do it again!

Maki was a great and interesting guide. He pointed out things that we would normally have just walked past. The High Line is somewhere we would definitely return to.

We've heard about The High Line quite a bit. So we decided to give it a try. Well worth it.

Keep in mind that this was never anything more than an unsightly and scummy abandoned elevated train line. Not any more. It is now beautiful.

Lots of people out and about. Some very clever use of existing materials and, voila, a really pleasant promenade.

We only walked a few hundred yards. So now it is at the top of our list for our next visit to NYC.

We walked the High Line and took a whole afternoon to soak up the city centre tranquility and green-ness. Elevated above the traffic and at eye-level with residents' window-boxes, balcony gardens make the High Line a fascinating and almost surreal experience. The setting instills a sense of calm and quiet with most if not all people speaking quietly and calmly as if in a holy place. If you're up for a relaxing walk and want to take the pace off your time in NYC , the High Line is to be recommended.
