A Great Little Walk

What a great use of a disused railway line. This is certainly worth spending the time to chill out. It is a relaxing walk with many places to stop and eat. Highly recommended.

I walked part of the High Line from West 23rd Street to Chelsea Market. I was quite amazed at how the city took an abandoned train track and turned it into a beautiful park. The High Line has enough trees, flowers, and vegetation for you to get the park feeling, but the areas where you can see train tracks remind... More

What a great park. The beauty is not only in the greenery but bring above and away from the crowds. It offers a few vendors selling cold treats, platforms to view the city, Lego community project, and many areas to get lost in the landscape. A nice way to spend a morning or late afternoon.

I loved the High Line. A very interesting combination of nature and modern city life. There are nice places to sit and relax, there are places to get food (ice cream etc), I love it :) Go near sunset for some lovely skies.

I was tipped off by this while out to dinner and making friends with the table next to me. It was late November, a little chilly but I was so glad these diners told me about this. It's a brilliant use of space and despite being in the middle of the Chelsea neighborhood, it's pleasantly serene. There are benches and... More

The High Line provides a very unique view of New York. It's a wonderful walk with art on the buildings along the way. If you visit in summer, get an ice cream sandwich from the Melt cart near the south end and have a nice walk.

this is the only place on the lower west side where you can stroll, look at the views of the hudson, enjoy the plants, have a coffee, buy souvenirs, relax on the seats, wet your feet and just hang out. the old elevated rail has been beautifully redesigned and is constantly well maintained. a joy.

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.
