Looking for something different to see and had heard about this. It us a very nice way to enjoy a little nature in a very urban setting. Built upon an old elevated railway, it is now a green space with walks and benches. We had a very nice walk on a mild January day.

The High Line is a unique and wonderful space in New York City that seems to always be mobbed, except if you go in the morning or evening. Reclaimed railroad tracks that until 1983 transported live animals to New York's west side meatpacking district for slaughter, packaging and distribution have been turned into an amazing above ground park that has...

If you need a break from the crowds and concrete, be sure to visit the High Line - its a meandering walkway above the city, but you can still see the streets and beautiful buildings surround you - it's so much quieter than being on the street, and the plantings are beautiful even in the dead of winter - a...

Biggest asset: the entry is free. Biggest disadvantage: you can't ask your money back if you're disappointed. I had quite high expectations of this park, but the reality wasn't as exciting as my expectations. But overal still worth it if you have nothing else to do. Maybe the reality wasn't as exciting as my expectations due to the fact that... More

Ok, so probably much more beautiful at almost any other time of year, but so impressed that this project happened. Really nice community space and some great views of the city and river.

nice walk - avoid weekends where the crowd is overwhelming and the walk is close to stand-still. Great views!

My daughter, her friend, and I started at the north end and walked to the south end. We loved the experience. Our greatest surprise was the spectacular tall condos going up in that area. What a change from ten years ago.

Great transformation of the space. Very crowded. Beautiful space and art but hard to appreciate due to the crowd and small children running a muck. Would like to revisit when there's less of a crowd.

Can't say any more that hasn't been said already, brilliant. Its like a cross section with the Whitney Museum as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

The High Line has been rastefully restored to become a 1.26 mile nature walk on an old tramline. It contains a selection of plants and seating areas and fantastic views of the city. The only negative was that is was so very cold and windy while we walked along but that's because we very silly enough to visit in February.

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.
