Great hike in NYC

This is the third time we have visited the High Line. This time we started at the north end and walked half way down. Still a lot of work to be completed.

Yes is beautiful but you can skip it if there's something better to do. I thought it was way better than it really is

I adore this attraction. It is such an asset to the city. Take a break from the hustle and bustle & take a walk on the highline. A seasonal exhibit the highline, from what I hear is beautiful year round. I visited on a rainy Monday & I so enjoyed it. It is a great way to experience New York.... More

Reminiscent of a seawall, but lifted up into the sky and for the enjoyment of various plants, the High Line is surprising. This doesn't require a full day, but it is worth seeing if you want a break from the crowded street, want to see some plants, want a good vantage point for photos, or plain just want to see... More

This is such a cool path to check out. There is plenty of nature, very few vendors, and great views of the city. If you have time it's a great way to check out the city.

A nice way to see, feel and read about a bit of history (as it was an old transport train line). We started at the end near the convention centre and ended in Chelsea....which was nice as the best parts were last (including the ice-cream) It was a bit busy but it was a nice change to walk without traffic...

Favorite spot in NYC! A taste of contemporary, a taste of trees, the taste of art. Coolest repurpose of a railroad track one could imagine. And great places to stop and shop and eat along the way. A complete must do in NYC.

Walked the High Line while in new York. It was a really hot day but there was plenty of seats with shade along the way. It was a lovely walk its an old railway line high above the ground. We started up town then ended up at Chelsea. There are food stalls and a market at the end.

This is a great idea, which has been spoiled by two things: - the excessive scaffolding along the walk. I know this is for the safety of the walkers, but does it also mean the walk is to be completely enclosed by tall buildings in some spots? - poor signage. Otherwise really enjoyed this activity.

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.
