“Don't visit after a snow storm”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I visited a few days after the February 2013 snowstorm. Not a good idea because all the trees etc were damaged and it looked really bad! The whole essence of the High Line was gone. Would definitely recommend seeing it in the other months.

“A quintessential New York experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This former elevated train line that once brought goods into the city is now a beautifully designed walk that blends nature, art and urban views. It's a quintessentially New York experience - the best of these worlds coming together. I look forward to seeing it in all seasons. Also, don't miss the history of the high line in several display boards at the south end. Like may good things, it almost didn't come into being. Plan to go to Chelsea Market while you're there for another don't miss experience

“Alternative”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

When I went, it was so crowded as to be oppressive. We went over to the Hudson River Walkway instead, The views of the river were great. The people watching was great, while manageable. And we were rewarded with a sunset view of the Statue of Liberty that I won't soon forget.

“Great Even in Winter”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

What a great way to re-use an abandoned elevated freight rail line on Manhattan's lower west side. By planting trees and grasses in amongst the rails, the public gets a lovely place to walk and relax even in the dead of winter. We found the dried grasses just as lovely as the flower beds which will replace them in the spring and summer. It's found space in a place where space is at an extraordinary premium and parkland is just about impossible to create. The High Line is a little urban miracle, any time of year.

“great”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I think this Highline is amazing, great attention to details, the design is splendid. It's refreshing to be walking there extracting yourself from the sometimes fuzzy ground...
