I wouldn't say this is a must see attraction when visiting New York but it is a nice walk with some lovely views. Think it would look better in the summer as was very windy and cold the day we visited!

Really a nice walk on a warm fall day. We took and Uber from our Tribeca hotel to get there, it was an easy and comfortable ride. Walked the whole lengths of the Highline - and enjoyed the views. In mid October some of the trees were changing colors and surprisingly some of the flowers were still in bloom. Even... More

We walked this in Sunday 4th December. It is a nice walk full of little surprises. There are toilets along the way and plenty of places to get off and on if you wish. Took use about 90 minutes.

Don't take cards from monks. The only downside to this walk are the monks that walk around. I don't know if they are monks or part of a cult, but if you take a card from them, they will not leave you alone. Otherwise, a great walk, won't take long. You can start at the Whitney and go to the... More

Amazingly after nine visits to NYC my family and i had never walked the High Line...always much more to do elsewhere. We're glad we did it this time...A visit to Chelsea market nearby firstly then down to Gansevoort st where the walk begins. Traffic free and a lovely vibe about the place...recommended

We love New York, we love the noise and the bustle but equally we really enjoyed a few hours of peace and quiet on the High Line on a Sunday morning during our stay! What a great idea, beautifully done with lots of seating stops along the way, great views and photo opportunities during a lovely wander. We only got... More

We were told about this by a local. Really enjoyed walking away from the traffic with good views over the Hudson.

Very interesting... one of many highlights of our time in New York. We walked the length of the High Line and took advantage of wonderful photo opportunities. The weather was amazing and we took advantage of the many shaded seating areas to enjoy the views

Take your time, enjoy the promenade and view the city from above. If you start of finish by eating at Chelsea Market, then it would be perfect.

We came to the High Line after reading an article about the park. Very nice elevated pathway/park. Great views and a nice way to explore part of the city often overlooked.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
