High Line

Beautiful walk above the city. Very crowded on week-ends.I prefer to start at the far end and work my way back to the Chelsea area.

Who would have thought that an abandoned rail line could become a major tourist attraction? But don't miss it. The natural vegetation is well maintained and where else can you look directly into peoples apartments or hotel rooms?

When I first read about the idea behind the High Line I was curious. The first time I went it blew away even the people who didn't "get" what a cool park it was. I took a different group this time, and again everyone agreed it's a cool park with amazing views and a must-see when visiting the city.

The High Line is definitely something to include on a trip to NYC. For starters, it's free. They have successfully rescued a piece of architectural history by transforming it into a lovely garden stroll amid the urban glass and steel jungle of New York. Thoughtfully designed, the trail incorporates elements of nature and railway in clever ways - lounges that... More

Looked great in theory and from photos. A nature walk in the middle of the city complete with trees, flowers - an urban getaway! Not so much in reality though. This is literally SO packed on weekends it feels like you are waiting in a huge line of people, as it moves at a crawling - pace. My husband and... More

Start at the beginning and take it to the end. It's fun to walk above Manhattan and a nice idea to put some green into a concrete jungle. It also connected me with a great restaurant I saw on my jaunt - Artichoke Basille's. Oh, and if Melt Bakery is on the High Line, make sure to check out the... More

In the bustling city that is New York, the high line provides a welcome splash of green and relaxation. We had a guided tour (free with our New York Pass) of the High Line and meat packing district with Kevin (who was just brilliant!). The high line is a linear park and a definite must see when visiting New York!... More

The high line is an elevated park off 10th Ave with entry on W30th.... They did a nice job converting an elevated subway track into a pleasant green way park with benches and tables and a fair view of the Hudson and the subway parking lots. But worth a trip for a sunny- today was warm and sunny - days... More

A great idea. Unused railway tracks turned in to a walkway with shrubs and flowers planted among the tracks. Sun decks and other areas for sitting. Great views overlooking the now gentrified meat packers district but a very clear idea. Some more green space. Shame the flowers and shrubs were not out but I can imagine as the weather warms...

We had a very nice walk along the High Line on an overcast April day. It's almost a bit surreal, strolling along above the streets, but it was thoroughly enjoyable and gave us a different view of the city. In the warmer weather, when there is more greenery lining the path and leaves on the trees, it would be even... 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.
