Feel like spending sometime outside with a nice view on the Hudson River then walking the approximately 2,5 milles track of the Highline (old railroad) is a must. Tracks runs from 14th street to 34th street in Chelsea and ends up in Chelsea market ( nice place for a quick meal or shooping. Enjoy it on a sunny day!

The High Line Park is a rich place in heritage to New York City's history. It is also a great place to take pictures of the surrounding urban landscape and nature as they are an abundant amount of flowers and plants in the park which creates interesting photography opportunities.

Highline is a new and special place, where a redundant overhead railway serving the meat-packing area near Little Chelsea has been converted into a walk-through linear park. The design quality is very good and the walking experience outstanding - offering a continuous cross-section through the Lower West Side. Take a good camera!

Well executed re-use of an old rail line in Manhattan. A photographers dream. Native plants. Old rails. Children's activities. Great views of the city & the Hudson River.

If you love architecture and art you will enjoy it tremendously. Plenty of street art and the most modern architecture in NYC.

This was an interesting and special way to see the reverse side of New York - around midway there is a super burger restaurant called The New York Burger - a must half way though the route.

Spend a day walking the High Line. It's an amazing piece of urban development that offers lovely views of the city, cool public art and nice spots to sit and relax. The public toilets were also ridiculously clean. Get off at Chelsea and get a lemonade from Bubby's High Line - it was seriously the best lemonade in NYC.

Great place to take a walk and enjoy nature. it's a shame you can't get away from the NYC noise pollution even in the center of this very large park. Noise is a constant in NYC. Fortunately this space can help take your mind off of it even if just for minutes. many paths to walk along. Places to stop... More

It's great to see what they do in some cities with undesirable eyesores and not so pretty neighbourhoods. All big cities should take a leaf from NYC's highline development.
