The High Line park is situated on what once was a dilapidated elevated rail line, which has been transformed into a very attractive public space. If you are walking up or down the west side of lower Manhattan, the High Line park is much nicer to walk on than the streets. The High Line features a walking trail, trees and... More

Great walk in New York City. Up away from the construction with easy access down to the city streets for food, drinks and shopping. Neat buildings up and going up all around. This was an area changer.

I stayed right next to it when I was in NYC, so it was really nice to walk on it every day, such beautiful place, so green, like a park! Especially at sunset time!

Opened in 2009, the elevated park salvaged from abandoned train tracks was an instant hit with New Yorkers and visitors alike. As it has expanded over the years, it has gotten even better, offering a mike stretch of views, plants, art and architecture to walkers as they make there way along. Suggestion: start at the north end at 33rd Street... More

Wind down the evening and watch the sunset along the High Line. Definitely a great way to enjoy while escaping the busy streets. Many staircases allow exit to check out shops and restaurants street level, but you'll definitely enjoy the walk along the converted freight train route landscaped with green and plush flowers and plants. A very pleasant way to... More

The High Line is an amazing community project that has turned an ugly railway into an amazing outdoor space. The gardens are a refreshing break from the buildings. We also saw white butterflies which was an unexpected sight in the city.

Wonderful outdoor escape from the bright lights and big city. We enjoyed a stroll one showery Saturday and enjoyed the sights the greenery and the people watching. We enjoyed a beer at one of the little bar franchises and watched the parade if all sorts. Plants are wild and pleasant. Overall a pleasant interlude and I would recommend

A delightful stroll in a park like setting high above the city bustle. Cool breezes from the Hudson River, benches, greenery and knowledgeable volunteers to explain the history and development of the High Line. A wonderful, peaceful afternoon option.

If you plan to walk the High Line, download the Bowery Boys Podcast walking tour. So much insight. Regardless this is a facilitating view of NYC. Make sure to stop at Chelsea Market along the way!

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.
