We walked the High Line as a family in late July when the weather was warm but not unpleasantly hot. If you think you've seen New York already then this will freshen up your ideas. The vistas it offers are different and show a side of the city that can't really be experienced from street level. Not only that but... More

Went here with my parents and children. It was a lovely, relaxed place to walk - beautifully done and with lovely views. Nice break from the city streets. Probably better for adults and young children in buggies, as mine (12, 10 and 8) got a bit bored by the end. Great for us adults, though.

We had visited the High Line on the recommendation of a family member and we were in for an incredible surprise! It is a great example of reclaiming an old railway track and converting it into a green lung in the middle of the city. While we visited the place during the freezing winter in Feb, it's beauty and uniqueness... More

The third and final section of this elevated rail remainder turned park opens later this Fall. May I recommend visiting around 6 pm? The crowds are thinner. the sunset after 7 this time of year is glorious. Tables abound. Food for sale is reasonable. I paid $8.75 for a quesadilla and a bottle of water--hardly over-priced and hardly "plastic" food-... More

On our last day we decided to give the High Line a try, and what a treat! It's an incredibly well-thought out idea executed so well, and it's the fine details that make it so enjoyable. Incorporating the old tracks into the wild gardens and adding interesting things like a covered food area going through what looks like an old... More

It's an amazing place if you need to just re-set yourself in the city. With great places to lounge and spend some time reading or just to soak up some sun.

We went on a summer weekend, so the crowds were pretty dense in spots, but totally worth it. Saw some terrific street art, able to see to the rivers through buildings, a really cool stroll.

This park is really special with great views and a lot of places to hide. From time to time you find artists and nice snacks available. Green oasis for the soul.

A beautiful park in the sky! The High Line is an NYC must-see, with its wonderful views and is a great example of industrial land reclamation. Start at the 30th street end, where you'll see the extension under construction & stroll down towards Gansevoort Street, stopping at the viewing spurs en route. Take a few minutes to daydream on any... More

A great tour in a very different and beautiful park! A lot of interesting info on how the area has transformed over time. Our guide Linda was great, very entertaining and packed with stories about the area. Highly recommend!
