Each year we walk the High Line and enjoy every inch of it. Those inches grow as the project's length is increased. In our opinion this is simply the most beautiful job of urban landscaping in the United States, and the increasing number of people traversing it are a testament to this fact. FYI, the High Line is an approximately one mile (plus or minus) abandoned train track about three stories above the ground that has been landscaped incredibly. It runs from about 12th Street to 30th along the west side of Manhattan. It originally ran through warehouse and factory buildings as an above ground freight train. The High Line has helped revitalize this area, which runs from Meat Packing to Chelsea. If you have only one outdoor experience to have in NYC, this is our favorite!!!

OK we were there in November so there weren't many flowers out, but as it was a warm and sunny day, it was still interesting to go for a stroll in this park, it's a different perspective being high above the streets looking down and there are some interesting and unexpected little sights to spot (mainly art-wise). We were also there in the fairly early morning so there weren't any food places and some of the stalls were only setting up, but we were just there to enjoy the view, which we did. Worth a visit if you have the time. Plus it's free to enter.

I started at the Meatpackers end which is quite interesting in itself. It was a Sunday afternoon and the walk was very crowded, but great affording views over parts of the city you may not otherwise get. We walked the whole length and you do finish in the back end of beyond - its a bit of a walk up to Penn Station but worth a visit none the less.

Going from one different plant style to another this lengthy high top walk is great - get the bus to the end where all the trains stop and walk right to the meat packers district. There are places to sit, photograph, relax, eat, drink and get off to the ground level. Lifts werent working the day I was there but stairs ok for me. once you get to the top its level all the way - well worth it if you like something different and so different to being in the street.

A twenty block walk one story above the streets and crowds especially when it's sunny and everyone is enjoying the view and the stroll is unbeatable.
