This walk is fantastic (thanks to the creative genius behind this high line walk idea) and there was a great community feel as lots of people were walking together and looking at lots of different things along the way chatting happily and taking photos of different environments as the walk unfolds. It felt like a really relaxing and freeing walk.... More

What a great feature for the lower west side. Reclaiming an abandoned rail road track and turning it in to a great walking park for the city. We started at the upper end, and walked down to the Gansvoort market. Beautiful plantings and occasional sculpture. This is a don't miss free activity!

I love this idea. This was one of my favourite places I visited in New York, it's nice to not have the hype of places like Times Square and be disappointed. It's basically a quite long disused overhead railroad that has been converted into a garden. The plants are pretty wild looking, I think that adds to the charm. There... More

Good views, you can see NYC while walking above it, not just standing in one place. Great landscaping, a perfect place for leisure. Quite windy and crowded, but it's definitely worth it.

Wonderful experience! Much credit should be given to the New Yorkers who envisioned the potential to create this beautiful free space in the middle of New York. I highly recommend all visitors to 'walk the line'

What a great idea to convert old train tracks into a very relaxing green scenic walking track in the city. Plenty of places to get on and off and loads of seating.

Whoever thought of the idea of re-purposing this old structure is a genius. Not too long ago, the neighborhoods surrounding the abandon elevated tracks were dreary, depressing and somewhat scary. The advent of the Highline Walk dramatically changed everything. The structure now provides a walk over NYC that offers unique views from a park that is full of beautify plantings... More

A great thing to do on a lovely Saturday early afternoon - a unique experience and so glad I did it. Some great views, interesting architecture along the way and we finished at Gansevoort Street where I went into the market to buy a well-deserved hot chocolate! Really enjoyed it and a very different experience to walking up one of... More

If it is a pleasant day, you must take a walk along the High Line. Stop for a bite to eat at Chelsea Market along the way. Such an enjoyable green space in such a busy city!

We walked the High Line....with lots of others. Really recommend it as a very pleasant way to see New York form a different perspective. Feel like you are looking into the back yards but in a good way. Lovely atmosphere.
