“Great park use for an abandoned elevated railway.”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The High Line is one of the most visited attractions in New York City--mostly by locals who enjoy strolling down this elevated railway with views of the Hudson. Little booths selling souvenirs, knich knacks, and food are set up all along the path during warmer weather in this, one of the last areas of Manhattan to be rejuvenated. Lots of new buildings with interesting architecture line this wonderful place for a stroll during the spring, summer, and fall. The north end is not too far from the passenger boats that ply the waters to the Statue of Liberty and around the southern tip of the island for another pleasant journey while you are in New York. We recommend you give it a try.

“Nice escape from the street level -- even before Spring.”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

When New Yorkers recommend a tourist attraction and say they visit regularly, you know it must be something special. I headed up the stairs to the High Line at about 23rd street, and walked along it until the end. I look forward to being in NYC when it is green!

“Something special”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

When I lived in NYC in the 1990s, the area around what is now the High Line was desolate and the elevated track itself was perceived to be an eyesore. How things have changed in 20 years! The High Line has become an improbable treasure -- who would have guessed in 1990? -- and it has catalyzed the metamorphosis of the surrounding area. It's a wonderful place for a leisurely stroll. Full of unexpected views of the urban landscape and chock full of with creative landscaping. The only downside is that it does get crowded on nice days... like everywhere else in Manhattan. And so far as I can tell, there is only one public restroom along the way. So go before you go, and enjoy!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The High Line is a relaxed way of walking a part of Manhattan. It is rather quite, you can see a lot because of the height and is it a nice part of Manhattan. Besides that there is some artwork which adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
