The High Line park is a great place to walk. It is like a rails to trails, but up on a platform. The setting is really calming and there are a lot of places you can sit and be by yourself if you want. There are elevators and stair that you can access the park. It seems that the high... More

The High Line is a beautiful walking area - built along the old railway lines running along the Hudson River. It is beautifully done with many spots to sit and enjoy the vegetation, the view, or to people watch! It is well maintained and the plants are well maintained. You can hike a little or a lot depending on where... More

There is nothing special about this place. You just walk for a mile with nothing special to do, to feel or to see - if you want a good view - go anywhere else in the city. if you want to see trees - go to Central Park. If you want to peep - come to the High Line. An... More

We spent an entire morning just walking around admiring the flora and urban views. Thoroughly enjoyable and fun - a bit of fresh air in this congested city. I would definitely do this again.

Wonderful find - the High Line is totally unique, and it changes as you go through - trees in one part, an outdoor cinema screen in another, benches here, leafy archways there. Put it on your to do list!

We are New Yorkers, but moved south 14 years ago. Love Manhattan, where we used to live. Walked the whole High Line from 34th Street south on Monday. Narrow, crowded, some nice views, but not one of the things that I would do again.

High Line has received enormous press both in the US and overseas and has been the subject of books. I visited the Promenade Plantee in Paris earlier this year, a site that offers at least some inspiration for the High Line. I have to suggest that the High Line is the more rewarding experience, partly for the views from it... More

Not all tourists might look up the high line but they should. A legacy of community action to preserve part of NYC's industrial heritage the old railway, beautifully restored and embellished with artwork and plant beds, offers raised views of parts of the city you might not otherwise see. Recommend taking the full rampart walk from south to north and... More

My wife and I walked the High Line from 30th Street to its Southern terminus. We thoroughly enjoyed the views of the city on either side and the diversity of flora planted along the way. It was a beautiful Fall day so we saw lots of other people but never felt crowded. It was delightful to see the range of... More

What a wonderful recycling of an old goods line running from 14th Street up to the recently opened last section to 34th Street. Well landscaped. Good views. Facilities and cafes along the way. I have visited this several times over the last 5 years and still include it in my visits to NYC.
