The highline is a must see once in a visit. It's a huge walking park elevated above the city along repurposed train tracks. The views of the river, nearby buildings, and street are outrageous, and the foliage along the way, as well as several built in art/ fountain structures are equally cool. It can be quite hot on hot days,... More

We had a spare day and the manager at Connollys suggested this walk along a disused railway line 20ft in the air, it was very pleasant strolling along taking the views of New York in and at the same time the plants and trees in on the railway line, highly recommended and its free!!

What a fantastic use of what would otherwise have been either built on or left to decay, you get wonderful views to the Hudson, elevated views over the city and the chance to walk on or next to the rails; the junctions are especially good. But the highlight is the planting, wonderful greenery and flowers blossoming over the streets of... More

The linear parks in New York are a testimony to community thinking and green development. The highline is a great example. If you're walking anywhere in this area, make a point of using the park. It's up above the street level, traffic free and a delight to walk along.

It was an amazing experience to live. Walking over the city, in the middle of trees, plants... An experience that a visit to NYC deserves to be lived!

The high line is one of the best free attractions in NYC. The walking trail provides a unique view of the city. It passes through many shaded areas and has water fountains. There are not many restrooms though. There are plenty of exit and entry points along the way to take a break. Worth the walk.

Take a walk on a beautiful day on this walkway then stop in Chelsea Market. The flea market space is amazing. So New York. Bowery Kitchen is fantastic browsing and shopping.

For anyone who's been to Manhattan, you know how chaotic it can be. If you like New York, then it's a highly enjoyable chaos. But the Highline walk provides a nice break. It can busy to be certain, but it feels much calmer than the rest of the city. And being a couple of stories up provides a really interesting... 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.
