Not just tourists love the High Line. New Yorkers do, too. The designers of the rebirth of this elevated freight rail line in the Packing District have been extremely clever. They have created a park, with plants, blended with glimpses of the original rail line, places to sit, people watch, have some food, while walking across about 30 blocks of... More

Superbly recreated a meandering park from the relic of "the EL''...an elevated railway... ( can't get the image featured in The Blues Brothers film of its previous existence!! ) Do the full walk, perhaps drop down to street level about halfway along & grab cool drinks or coffee at the famous Empire Diner or whatever name it now goes by.

Up above the streets of NYC on the west side stands the old train trestle that was not removed. Instead a beautiful walkway, with plants, artistic benches, sculptures, and old train tracks are enjoyed by people walking. Throughout my walk I did not see joggers, nor bicyclists. It was an enjoyable and relaxing walk. A definite add to the bucket... More

Definitely worth a visit. Very clever use of the old railroad tracks. Great views of parts of the city. Have walked it twice - once last November and again in August. Seems they have added more food vendors and other park-like areas, but that could just be the different seasons. Highly recommend walking this path (probably 1 1/2 - 2... More

Where else could you spend an hour or two soaking up the NY atmosphere for free?! Best park in N Y city, get to see the city from a different perceptive , time out from a hectic day. Looking forward to returning and seeing the proposed expansion, and hopefully more to come!

It was nice to take a stroll along the highline but I am not sure where the excellent ratings come from. Sure it is nice to walk along above the busy streets below, but the highline is also very busy during the day. I think we should have gone early morning to see it at its best. Coming from a... More

This a long path of beautiful gardens, water park-like features for the kiddos to cool off, and theater type seating to soak up the views. All built above the old meat packing district...there are vendors at the end that offer a wide selection of food/drinks, but one of the most impressive was the shaved ice stand that they get from...

This is a great way to see part of the City and daydream about what it would be like to live there. You pass a lot of interesting buildings, and there are wonderful views. The gardens are beautiful. You can head down into the neighborhoods at various spots for shopping or restaurants. Combine it with a visit to the Chelsea... More

We walked the High Line Park (Southbound) from beginning (30th street) to its end three blocks below Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District and enjoyed every single sight of this greenway. The park offers visitors the chance of discovering the city from a different perspective as it is elevated.This unique path displays modern sculptures and fountains that set off the... More
