    Fun walk
    It was a nice long walk! Beautiful with lots of plants on the sides of track. Lots of interesting buildings on the sides of track. Lots of places to sit down and take a break. Really enjoyed it

    Don't miss the High Line!
    Missed seeing this last trip to NYC 12 years ago, and it was worth the wait! We took the free tour on Saturday morning, don't know what more a paid tour could offer. The HL was also a convenient path to take when it was on the way and beat surface streets and traffic lights. It was Memorial Day weekend, so it was crowded, but still very enjoyable. Don't miss it!

    A REAL DELIGHT
    High Line in New York is a long, stretching park set upon an elevated train track in the middle of Manhattan. My wife and I visited New York for two days as part of a larger cruise tour and really enjoyed the experience of the High Line. Located principally in the Meatpacking District, the High Line is a real joy to access.

    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.

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.

Pleasant half hour walk elevated among the buildings of new York with trees and plants along the way making it an oasis among the busy new York streets.

Fantastic new place to visit in New York. What used to be a railroad track is now a beautiful walking path right in the center of the city. Definitely worth a visit and it's completely free.

In a concrete jungle like NYC it’s always nice to see green and walk among plants and trees. Appreciated the new installations and seeing all the volunteers out weeding and tending to the garden. Always a treat to walk the high line.

Great vision to repurpose a disused elevated railway line and it's brilliantly executed. Views of the city and the Hudson and imaginative vegetation on a narrow but long footprint.
It was already busy on a cool Thursday morning in May, so it must be hopping when the weather gets warmer and tourist season heats up.

My wife and I traveled to NY for second time and searching for something which is a layer deeper than times square and freedom statue.
We planed to walking in the high line and end it up in Chelsea market exit and had dinner there.Very good combination highly recommended.
We liked it very much. Nice walk things to read or observe. Free and pleasant. One of advantage of high line is passing NY street without red light.
