Nice place to walk around and see the sights of the city, but rather noisy due to ongoing construction. I can imagine that it will be much nicer after all the buildings around it are finished!

The high line was a real treat with bustling pedestrians joining up from all different vantage points. Great little vendors dotted the path with muffins, ice creams and smoothies and the odd market stalls where "one of a kind" purchases could me made were unusual and quirky. We had superb weather which made it a treat and a breeze from... More

Go early b/c it gets crowded, but definitely worth it eve if you are only in NYC for a few days. I haven't been on the extension to up mid-30s, but on my to-do list when it's not so humid out!

Amazing gardens, very people friendly space. Try not to rush it as we did, take the time to soak up the atmosphere, and bring your walking shoes!

We watched the highline development from our business which was immediately adjacent to it. A neighborhood that was once dead and decrepit was given a whole new life with the opening of the highline and all the associated development the rezoning brought on. A tranquil oasis in the middle of the city and well worth the trip.

Among all the free activities on your NYC itinerary, put the High Line at the very top of your list. This once rusted, falling-apart, elevated rail line on the far West side of Manhattan has been transformed into a delightful outdoor space and park. Volunteers keep the flowers and shrubs looking better than some of the plantings at the botanical... More

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.
