Awesome. Such a simple idea, but it works so well. I think it is the attention to detail which really stands out. Very popular with a younger crowd, and for some reason with courting gay couples on the day we went - which made it extra special for us. Take a sandwich on a warm day, and have a mini... More

The High Line is such a beautiful place to escape to and relax away from the busy streets. Being spring, all the flowers were out, butterflies everywhere and masses of beautiful green foliage set against the interesting New York street scape. Take a cold drink and sit on the gras and watch the world go by. Lots of interesting people... More

Well designed and a relaxing place to step a way from all the excitement. Great artists, gelato and an espresso make it all worth while.

The High Line is a huge success and a great addition to puvlic space in New York City. Abandoned for years as a redundant elevated railway line serving the meat-packing district, it's the classic example of how you can make something of "nothing". Now a much-valued walking route, it may be complemented in future by an equally brilliant initiative on... More

We had a very nice dinner at the Spice Market and walked a couple blocks from there to the southern end of the High Line. We were only going to walk a few blocks as we were exhausted from nearly 10 miles of walking during the day, but the views were so great and the weather so nice we walked... More

This is worth seeing - try to start at one end and work towards the other and time it so you can then wander into the meatpacking or West Village at one end or Chelsea at the other for lunch or dinner. Great views, photographic opportunities and a look at buildings from above ground. And its free.

The High Line is terrific for a relaxed walk that takes in fabulous views of New York. There are places to sit and relax and plenty of dining and shopping options nearby.

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.
