It's a beautiful piece of converted urban space provided the much needed green space for NYC, but I must say as a tourist, I kept walking and expecting more(because of its reputation). Would recommend going if you are taking a leisurely trip to NYC and have lots of time, but if you are there for a highlights tour, this is... More

I knew I wanted to visit the High Line this trip to NY and I'm glad I did. We walked it end to end, and could have done it again. It's nice a relaxing (we avoided the weekend and rush hours). Lots of seating if you get tired, but also lots to see along the way. There were a couple... More

What an experience. We were told by a friend to go along to see this and were really happy that they did. It is a nice stroll along an old abandoned rail system that was used to ship goods from lower Manhattan to the middle of the island. It has lots of places to sit and take a rest as... More

The High Line was a bit of a challenge for me to find due to construction in the area but I found it. I started my walk at the opposite end of Chelsea Market so that I could go there at the end. The walk is very pleasant, clean, has seating for you if needed, and it a great way... More

So glad we went to the High Line, fabulous walk about a mile or so long, lots to see, plenty of seats to have a rest, vendors and stalls to shop at along the way and there were rest rooms (w.c. facilities half way across. I am not into plants but this is suitable for people of all ages, and... More

Heard about the transformation of this former train track on our bus tour so decided to go back and have a look/walk. It is a really interesting walk with plenty of places to sit and relax on the way round. I think it is probably about a mile and half in total but you don't have to do the full... More

There are lovely empanadas (I had one vanilla guava and two mushroom), many hipster kiosks - good prices for NYC. There was an art display of Lego buildings being exhibited while I visited. The gardens were luscious with many unique spaces and alcoves. You can nestle under the trees, find a free bench, scoop up an oversized wooden chair near... More

The High Line is a brilliantly different way of seeing parts of the city, it was clearly popular with other tourists or locals just wanting to take a stroll - but despite this it never felt crowded. It starts down near the Meatpacking district not far from Chelsea market, and we followed it all the way up to the lower... More

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.
