The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.

Not a lot is free in this world but the Highline is and is a must do in my view. Takes around 45 mins and is not at all taxing. A nice stroll with nature by your side. Almost completely flat and no bikes or scooters to watch out for. You start just by the spectacular ‘Vessel’ and finish in the Meat Packing District. Great views along the way.

This was the 2nd time me and my travel buddy ( my daughter ) had walked the highline
And we weren’t sure .. but not as enjoyable as the first time !!
Maybe it’s something only to be done once ?
Thought there may have been several coffee stops along the walk ( there wasn’t )

So .. it’s worth doing .. but Not imo , repeating

I've been excited about The High Line from the beginning. It has really evolved into something remarkable. The art is my my favorite part. So many unique pieces that we get to enjoy for free. "Windy" and "The Baayfalls"are my favorites at the moment. I also love "Freedom’s Stand" (see photo) by Faheem Majeed.

Walked the High Line in October 22 and well worth it

Was a sunny and warm autumn day, so colours were fantastic.

We walked from the top to bottom and it’s an easy walk - stopped for ice creams along the way.

Found that it was quicker to get across New York walking the High Line rather than stopping at every block for the lights to change

Well with a visit !

Only managed to go uptown direction from 23 Street entrance. Believe it is around a mile and a half in total. Nice views from this raised and planted walkway. The direction I walked took me around to the train yard and to the side of the Hudson. The very last part was unfortunately closed for repair work. This end of the walkway is very close to the Hudson Yards outlet and the Vessel, an unusual shaped viewing platform (again, this currently closed as there were some poor souls who saw it as a place to leave this earth, literally)

A rail line that was originally used to supply downtown Manhattan with food and goods was elevated to reduce traffic congestion and avoid pedestrian accidents. It fell into disuse and was converted into a walkway with well tended gardens and artworks that are changed with the seasons. It's an innovative use of public space, with unusual views of city buildings, including the usual notable landmarks. For those who may need to rest frequently there are benches all along the way.
