We walked the entire length and found it most enjoyable. It can be crowded in sections with people cramming the best spots along the way for photo ops, but all in all worth making time for.

Spent a lovely morning walking The High Line. An ingenious way to see The Big Apple's lower east side. We hopped of to enjoy a great brunch at the diner Star on 18. The planting and art along the way are quite interesting. Wonderful use of space in every way. Quick shuttle from the Ferries or you can walk from... More

We have walked the high line every time we visit our son in NY. Always spectacular no matter what season. One of the top ten in the city.

I love this park mostly because is shows that New York still has it when it comes to innovative ways of using public spaces. Excellently designed, beautiful, a must see if visiting.

Pros - Phenomenal design - Theater over 17th street amazing touch - Unique park that weaves seamlessly into the city - Love how the railroads are integrated into the design Cons - First phase is great. Second phase is significantly less novel and is rather boring. Third phase is nice. - Sort of out of the way from most traveled... More

This is one of my favourite spots in New York! You get great views down the streets of NY, see interesting pieces of art along the way whilst surrounded by well-maintained gardens for the length of the walk. There are numerous entry points & a couple of bathrooms along the way.

We had beautiful sunny Saturday in NYC and walking the high line was a great way to experience the city from another perspective. It was very crowded so is obviously a crowd favourite. You sense the "island" aspect of Manhattan since you can at times see the water on both sides Not a "must do" but definitely part of a... More

We walked the entire high line. Access/exit points every few blocks. Some nice views. An urban rail to trail experience.

Fantastic elevated park and path on the West Side of NYC - beautifully done, fun for kids and adults. Wonderful views - you feel like you are walking on a special, magical path above NYC. Great way to see the Hudson River and the Meatpacking/Chelsea area. Chilly in the winter (not much covered area). Nicest in the spring/summer/fall months -... More

An elevated railroad line has been converted into a park. Someone with more imagination than I have sought to preserve what I would have torn down. Begin at the Whitney and walk northward. It is well worth your time to view the park and the street scenes beneath.

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.
