The area
Address
Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.

I know they have interesting projects they do on the highline. And it's a pretty walk. And it's something newer in NYC. But I find it terribly exciting. It's just a walking path with no cars and tons of people.

One of New York's best experiences is to take a long walk on this elevated rail line, now turned into a public park. Great landscaping along the way, some places to sit. But the best part is being able to see the city from up above the street level. It is so popular that it is crowded, and has spawned a renewal in the neighborhoods that it spans. Amazingly popular.

Start at the Whitney and walk, even if only for a few blocks. The views are interesting. The fact that it was saved is remarkable. It is a place of peaceful reflection. In winter, bundle up, because it can be very windy and cold, but it is always worth a visit.

Nice place to walk, but really not much to do here.
Walked the High Line, check!
Unfortunately for us, it was too cold to enjoy spending a lot of time here.

This would probably be a lot better place to visit in summer, or autumn. A bit grim in winter, but worth a visit.

Well worth a visit, easy walk over a disused rail track. As you you above ground level the views are amazing and many opportunities for fantastic photos.

Located in a beautiful part of Manhattan, it is nice to buy a coffee and enjoy this romantic walk. Whenever you look up and around there is always nice views of traditional architecture and the NYC skyline.

The close-up views of the architecture on the clean and beautiful Highline were a highlight! One of the best things that my family did on a mild winter NYC day!

Take some time to stroll the High Line from one end to the other (which shouldn't take you more than 45 minutes at a very leisurely pace) alongside with locals and tourists. Nice view of Chelsea streets, avenues, apartment buildings, big and small, with nice views of Hudson river and NY city along the entire way.
Exit on 15th Street and venture into the city to stop by Chelsea Market for a bite and do some shopping on the way in and around it.
If you go the other way on 15th to the west and Hudson river, go see Little Island which is a unique thing all in itself. Great outdoor solution for reclaimed space freed by piers that were there in the past and are there no more. Walk around and enjoy the entire solution, spaces and views.

We took the High Line and were very pleasantly surprised at how lovely it is. Even on a cool winters day it was lovely to see the plants and the views of the city from a totally different angle. Stop at Chelsea for lunch and gelato, it's a real gem of a place and you can easily spend an hour or so there.
