There is nothing like spending a sunny afternoon on the High Line. New York City's only elevated park. The Highline is one of Manhattan’s most popular New York attractions, and it's easy to see why. The High Line was formally a rail track, which went out of use in 1980. The 1.45-mile-long strip was resurrected in 2009 and turned into one of the best NYC Parks, which runs from Hudson Yards to the northern edge of Chelsea. Lots of good food and drink and totally worth your visit. At Dean Myerow Associates we are committed to pointing out the best and worse of places as we see it. This is a must see and do!

You walk so much anyway in NYC, and this is a great way to see it without as many people and with a great view. Has lots of greenery and stopping places to sit and relax

Had a most enjoyable walk here on a Sunday morning. Plenty of places to stop and have a seat and take in the views of the Hudson River and New York. Walked all the way down to the Chelsea market were they are plenty of eating places and cafes for drinks. Enjoyable place to relax and walk.
