Great to spend a few hours, walking between the buildings and checking the sites. Lots of good picture taking opportunities.

High Line... great brake from the hustle and noise of the city. An amazing reuses of old rail line gardens art work, wood, stone, and metal work are nicely crafted for a wonderful design experience.

We walked the High Line on Saturday morning with a group from our church. We arrived at Penn Station and took the train to 14th street (one stop) to enter the high line at its southern most point. I would suggest that you just walk over the northern entrance at 30th Street and 10th Avenue and walk the entire High... More

This is a pleasant diversion from the hubbub of the New York streets. It works well as one leg of a Midtown walking tour to visit the Flatiron Building and The Empire State building and Times Square.

What a pleasure to walk on this path set up on a former railroad. It extends between Gansevoort and 30 street. Lined with trees and with plants it brings a note of freshness in New York. The temperature is more moderated than on the streets. We find small shops, restaurants. So instead of walking the streets, try it, you will... More

We walked the High Line both during daylight and late at night just before it closed (11 pm) and enjoyed it both times. It is beautiful, and peaceful at night without the crowds. A terrific reuse of urban space.

It's unique and cozy place to look down the city. You don't need to cross the road. With some grass and beautiful flowers you could also see the Hudsone river.

The High Line Park is a beautiful example of urban renewal and revitalization. It's a lovely park: great for a walk or to sit and sketch or work or drink your coffee, but my favorite part is the contrast between the park and the surrounding city-- it's a lovely oasis in the middle of the hubbub

The High Line is a recently developed parkway/greenway developed on an old railroad tressle in NYC from 14th Street to 30th Street. Depending on how often one stops to admire the views, it takes about an hour to walk. The planners and designers have done a tremendous job in making this a very beautiful urban experience. It would be very... More
