The high line is an excellent use of an old elevated railway line in NYC. Sitting above the traffic allows for great views across avenues and streets and offers visitors an interesting and unique perspective of the city. There are elevators at certain entrances for kids strollers / disabled access.

This is a great idea and well worth doing. The planting looks really attractive and there are plenty of seats as well as some restrooms. I found the views interesting rather than photogenic - Buildings at the southern end and railyards at the top end. There is a walk at each end to return to he subway. They also close... More

Really awesome place, it was a train track that used to be operational, but ever since the train stopped, it was transformed into a beautiful sightseeing place. There's lots of greenery, places for people to relax. Food, drinks, and icees are sold there too, really expensive, but good. You can easily bring your food up there, no one guards the... More

Lovely escape from hustle bustle and smog. friends of highline could help their cause by actually labelling the plants on the route rather than simply reminding people to Walk on path. Very pleasant way to spend an hour or so in NY. Then go to Chelsea markets afterwards. Well worth it! It is free!

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

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.

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

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.
