Rain or shine, find solace, art, nature and great people watching on the tracks of the high line. Don't imagine that it won't be busy, but granted your worst fear is being run over by a toddler-walked dog-- not a taxi. So put on your shades, a smile and amble enjoyably along.

Get a view of NYC above the crowds. See the new construction above the train yards. This elevated walkway is fun, free, and sometimes crowded. Musicians sometimes play along the way. Go all the way to the shopping and restaurants of Chelsea market and environs. There is something fo everyone - all ages. Note:,Some stairs are steep, and the path... More

It is just about 2 levels above the streets, but this is enough to offer some fantastic views of NY. Its Hudson River sunset view is one of my favorites. Avoid only when it is too cold and windy...

An old railway line turned into a park. Brilliant Idea!! I have been to the walk twice already and cannot wait to go again. Summer is a better time to visit..

What a wonderful way to spend time in the beautifully planted gardens in an old restored railway on the lower west side of the city. Walk blocks in the gardens and visit shops and restaurants minutes off of the High lLine

Great way to meander an afternoon away. Not super exciting but a nice way to get in a good walk. Check out the Chelsea Market right underneath as well.

The High Line is a great place for a stroll through the city without having to dodge taxis and cars below.

I had been told a walk along the high line was well worth doing to see the city from a different perspective. It's very true! You see the river and different neighbourhoods. After the high line I walked to Soho and then onto China Town. It was a very nice morning!

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.
