The High Line

New York, New York City

(44 588)

The High Line (also known as High Line Park) is a 2.33 km elevated linear park created on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line. Led by landscape architecture. The design is a complex "living system" that draws from multiple disciplines, including landscape architecture, urban design, and ecology, and has become an icon in contemporary landscape architecture. The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the winter, 10 p.m. in the spring and fall, and 11 p.m. in the summer, except for the Interim Walkway west of 11th Avenue, which is open until dusk. It can be reached through eleven entrances, five of which are accessible to people with disabilities. The park's attractions include naturalized plantings that are inspired by the landscape that grew on the disused tracks, and views of the city and the Hudson River. The High Line Park also has cultural attractions. As part of a long-term plan for the park to host temporary installations and performances of various kinds.

    I love the high line. One of my favorite places for a quiet walk in the city. It's gotten busier in the last few years, but it's still wonderful. To this day it's still not super touristy. Highly recommended. Of course, it's Manhattan, so there are excellent stops for food and drink along the way as well.

    Excellent way to convert an old railway into something beautiful and very unique. The walk itself took about 20 min, however if you do walk a bit slower and like to browse around it may take slightly longer. I would also recommend visiting it in Summer or Spring when the plantation is much greener and brighter. It does seem dull and dismal in Winter especially but non the less is still a beautiful walk. The walk is primarily flat with no steep inclines of declines, so it suited for all ages.

    What used to be a cargo railway track has been beautifully revitalized into a lovely park/walkway. A walk from one end to another walks you through different zones and the walkway landscape and design changes accordingly. The views from all parts is brilliant especially the lovely view of the Jersey City skyline at dusk. Best season to visit would be spring and summer.

    This place is awesome. For parents or anyone bringing children watch out for the guy who pretends to offer free painting community experience for a "donation". Right after the children starts drawing or painting, he'll tell you about the mandatory 5 dollar donation. That's completely fine but seriously it should be told up front. There was a lady next to me who didn't have any cash who he essentially forced to dig through her back for 68 more cents. She ended up having to explain to her second kid that he could draw with his brother because this guy is charging money.

    Great place to get away from the city without really getting away. This man made park sits on an old railroad track, and it’s truly amazing what they’ve done to it. It’s a nice walk with little attractions along the way. Definitely a must visit if you’ve never been. There’s plenty of space to sit on the grass, maybe have a picnic, there are also benches if the grass isn’t your thing. There is always something being featured, artist works, etc. sometimes you can see some very unique pieces.

    What a terrific oasis on the busy city! Lovely way to take in some great views of the city, or just enjoy a stroll. It's an internationally famous destination in NYC - listen to all of the languages as you walk. Truly amazing. Can get quite crowded. Visit in off hours if possible.

    New York's nicest parks. It's a pleasure to stand up here and admire the views of the city and the Hudson River. Really beautifully designed with an eye on sustainability. Just be prepared for larger crowds. If you're hoping to snag one of the reclining seats, get there early in the day as people will post up and not leave for hours.

    I've been to the High Line a couple times and both times proved to be a very relaxing experience. The scenery alone provides of enough of a distraction for me to be able to walk long the whole path before I realized that I had reached the end. Feel free to bring a couple of your friends and take all sorts of pictures of the mini exhibits they have there. It's well worth the trip.

    New York's Best Park. I love coming here in the summer, you can just take your shoes off and go for a nice leisurely stroll. Enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. Amazing Place for Photography. Always an amazing atmosphere. With Musicians, Yummy Food Vendors and plenty of places to sit or lie down and just chill out and tan in the sun.

    Beautiful, amazing! The idea of this park is phenomenal and it lived up to all of its expectations. The landscaping, architecture and location of the High Line is impressive. We walked the full length and saw new sights the entire way. We visited on a Saturday and it was pretty crowded but foot traffic flows non stop in each direction. There is ample seating throughout and a few restrooms available. The high line is a must see if you're visiting NYC!
