What a clever idea, beautifully executed. We went in the early evening when the gardens were lit up and it was so atmospheric. You could just stroll along, no traffic to worry about, crowds to negotiate and all this in the middle of New York. It's a place where children can safely run about without danger to themselves or others.... More

After being at ground level for the shopping and other sights it was wonderful to be up above and actually see the sky and the water. The planting and landscaping was awesome.

I walked here in late afternoon of December, when the whole afternoon basically feels like sunset. It's a nice way to get a little closer to that sunlight even if it's still 40 degrees out. Most of the plants were dormant, so no real greenscape to be seen, but you still get the idea of how it must look in... More

What a great idea to preserve a piece of history. A lovely place to be still and step back from the hustle and bustle of the city. Great views all around.

What a wonderful use of an old high line. It has been remarkably well designed and the experience of walking along it, seeing the sights and installations is well worth it. The planting and upkeep make it cool to visit, even on a freezing day!

Definitely worth it if you can fit it in. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle, although it was still quite busy with people! Some AMAZING views and just the whole concept is really cool hopefully they have finished the extention now! A nice little different piece to New York :)

Amazing views, from the highline. Beautiful views and photo opportunities but could of done with a couple more coffee facilities or better sign posts. But overall a lovely walk above the city!

Working in urban revitalization, this site was a treat! Wonderful idea to open this space to the public. Wonderful landscaping, ingenious idea to make us feel observers in a play, where NY city is the performer. Loved it!

Approx. 1.4 miles of elevated park with some interesting views of the city and great plantings with great plantings and decoration and seating's. People watching is always fun here with plenty of food trucks and kiosks on the south side. Better visited in growing season.

I discovered the high line through a waitress recommendation who gave me a list of must do's loved by New Yorkers. I was amazed and entranced by the concept of making an elevated rail line into a living linear Park. It was safe, walkable with plenty of seats and stops , unrivalled views. IT was full of joggers, walkers famous... More
