Walk along the Highline's 1.8 miles of walkways to enjoy the scenery, laid back vibe and the interesting stops along the way. Some of it is still being developed, so I am looking forward to more in the future. Hard to imagine such a creative, well maintained oasis in the middle of NYC.

Walking along the High Line is a fabulous way to see New York. It has been created with thought and beautiful plantings. It does get crowded of course but we stopped for a drink part way along and enjoyed people watching.

Lovely walk along the high line. Refreshments available. Would struggle to get up to this with a buggy or wheelchair but once up, no issues with access. Definitely visit if you can!

I did this at 5.30 on a sunday morning, I expected more of a 'run it's short but scenic - worth a visit especially early in the morning when no one else is around.

We walked around The High Line yesterday and it was a really nice treat. The old train tracks have been turned into a garden with walking trails and nice seating. You get to tour around some really cool apartment buildings as well. There are a few ice cream and drink vendors and a restroom.
