See what happens when brilliant urban planning combines with government and private funding. Go on a bright, sunny day and enjoy the walkway itself, the surrounding buildings, and, most fascinating, the people watching: all shapes, colors, languages.....Allow 2-3 hours and if you have the time and energy, wander the shops and streets adjoining the walkway. Go on their website and... More

Took a stroll along the High Line, heading North form Chelsea. What a great way to wander through NY! Its lined with beautifully planted beds, seating areas, outdoor performance spots, foodie stalls and craft vendors. It's a great way to experience the city and a wonderful oasis of calm above the bustling Manhattan Streets. It's well worth stopping in at... More

I had a beautiful walk along the high line. What a unique idea to transform a disused railway into a park with a difference. It was amazing to see wildlife flying around like dragonflies and bumblebees while walking through New York. I will be back to do a walking tour and walk the full length.

I had been reading about the High Line ever since there were plans to save and repurpose this dinosaur from the mid-20th century. What an amazing transformation and brilliant architectural concept. Finally got to spend a morning on the living art work last week and am so glad we could do so. It is a true place of solitude in... More

What a fantastic idea for a disused railway and free too. Great for a peaceful stroll in NY yet full of surprises. Take a walk then dine in the meat packing area.

This is now a very popular attraction. New York has the builders in, everywhere. So with a 11 am start we found the North end of the High Line. Most people start at the south. It is a, busy in parts, walk above the streets. Lots of folk checking out the buildings, missing the greenery on the high line, which... More

The Highline is the perfect place to take a stroll, get some sun, read a book, or enjoy a snack right above the city streets. You can catch some awesome views and see a pretty sunset from up there. The walking paths and plants make you totally forget you're in New York City.

Brilliant concept for converting and old subway line into a usable park in the midst of a concrete jungle. AN excellent place to either go for a walk, sit with a good book or just dream! And if you do get peckish, there are some stalls with beverages and eats.

A fascinating view of New York. Well worth the walk. We took the grey line bus to the Brooklyn Bridge, did the Brooklyn tour. Then walked back over the bridge. Walked through SoHo to Greenich Village had lunch in the West Village and then jumped onto the high line. This is a great full day for those who love walking... More
