We took the A subway to 14th st. Walked down Gansvort st through the heart of the old Meatpacking district. Entrance to high line was about 3 blocks from subway. Nice stroll to the end. Lots of places to take pictures.

You might consider this attraction. A part of the elevated subway track which is no longer in use has been reconverted into a walk with plants. No special views of the city, just a short walk, looking into the second floor of some buildings and yards some unused. The attraction is putting the tracks into an unusual use.

We walked along the High Line on a fairly cold and wet day, but still loved it. The view of New York's streets and the Hudson river, above all the hustle and bustle, is like a breath of fresh air. I can imagine that in the warmer seasons, when the flowers and trees are in bloom and the sun is... More

I am rating this place as a very good , only because I can never rate it as average! By all means it isn't. But it also its not my fav spot in the City. Yes its very nice, but a way too crowded for me. New Yorkers, tourists, hipsters, people with small children... On the other hand the idea... More

Very cool height to observe New York, not on the very top and not from street level but somewhere in between. we were there to early in the season and the flowers had not started to flourish yet that was a pitty. but it was a loveley day to go for a stroll anyhow.

the Highline can sometimes get crowded, but it's a great spot still to go check out and stroll along. Stop by the Chealsea Market first and pick up food for a picnic to enjoy on a bench with a view.

Not sure what to say...other than if you have to give up doing all you planned, save a couple hours for strolling. This is the city's answer to the passagata or promenade and one of the few places in the city where tourists can walk slow and not get dirty looks from city dwellers trying to get somewhere quickly.

A fun walk. Make sure you start at Gansevoort Street. We did it in winter and it was still enjoyable, however I imagine in summer it would be even more so.

It is worthwhile to see the High Line when you visit New York. You get a unique view of the city and the path will take you uptown or downtown to more amazing sites in New York.

You can spend the whole day here. Looking at the gorgeous apartment buildings, especially the glass ones. The foliage is wonderful, or you can sit and relax, read, enjoy an ice cream, people watch, look out over the water or what is going on along the West Side walkway. You can also walk down and tour the neighborhood, stop in... More
