Definitely worth a walk along the High Line. The walk itself is short, but you get to see some greenery that is rare in the city! Good views, and traffic keeps moving. Would be a great place to stop and read or escape the hustle and bustle that is NYC.

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.
