The High Line park is designed to allow you to enjoy nature, art, and the city streets in a whole new way. Surprises around every corner, like the 10th Avenue cut out near 17th Street, will leave you breathless. Combine this trip with a detour to nearby Chelsea Market (a food hall, shopping mall, Food Network, magical kind of place)... More

THE High Line Is In a great position by the river but in winter that is not an advantage as there is a strong continuous wind. The shrubs also look rather straggly but you can get a good idea of it to encourage you to return in summer. If visiting the Witney Museum you can access the HL from there... More

The High Line is such a good use of space in lower Manhattan. It gives the walker an interesting perspective. To be raised above the city a bit is great for looking and photographing.

Built on a disused arial railway, this was a hidden gem. As you would expect in November, there weren't many plants in bloom/leaf, but I should imagine it is beautiful in the spring and summer.

The High Line is a elevated structure converted in to a beautiful walkway with shrubs and greenery just a level above the city. This was apparently an old railway line. After having lunch at any one of the great restaurants in Chelsea, why not burn off the calories by taking a walk in peace and quiet on the High Line.... More

Great area of town to visit for an afternoon of great food options, amazing river views, eclectic architecture, and amazing plantings along the path that bedazzles imagination. Amazing shopping on the way back to midtown.

It's a great way to see NYC streets from a different perspective for anybody. It's safe, outdoors and enchanting. Well worth a visit on a nice day.

A nice walk along the line provides a welcome break from the rest of the city, with a nice, if somewhat "boboist" atmosphere.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
