The High Line

New York, New York City

4.5

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.

    One of a kind park. A really wonderful addition to New York City. They turned the old rail tracks into amazing elevated walkway with beautiful views of the city and plenty of benches. In my opinion, this park especially beautiful at sunrise or sunset. Lots of plants, shady trees, flowers, art, fountains, and food vendors if you are looking a snack or ice cream. We can't find any restrooms, but I guess they do exist. Nice place for a walk, take a break to relax and people watch.

    Absolutely beautiful. Perfect for walk with friends or SO. Does tend to get crowded but not uncomfortably so in my experience. The crowd doesn't take away from the experience though, it's NY, there's always a crowd. There are many places to sit throughout. A lot of cool artistic and architectural structures to see, even some small historical locations set up. 100% recommend.

    Walked the high line end to end and loved every bit of it. The way the train track and various elements of trains were implemented into and throughout the walkway made for a nice and cohesive design. The gardens and art installations were wonderful. I loved that there were places to sit and observe, people watch, or relax. There were some food/snack vendors available, but I greatly appreciated that there weren't a lot, and they didn't detract from the experience. Obviously a place enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Well done NYC. Will definitely do it again.

    We loved how this old rail line has been turned into a beautiful public space. You can tell a lot of time and love has gone into the gardens and paths. We really enjoyed walking the length of the line south to Chelsea markets. We were just visiting NYC, but I imagine this would be a great place to have lunch and relax if you were working in the area.

    Lovely to see how the planting has matured since my first visit. The second, newer, half going out to Hudson Yards has quite a lot of netted-off no-go areas because of adjacent building works at the moment, but still worth the walk. You'll end up in Hell's Kitchen and it's great to see how greening now continues through that neighbourhood. There's only one area for refreshments along the High Line at present - could do with another further along - but there are plenty of exits along the way.

    Absolutely love love taking walks here, especially at night. The high line is a city must place to visit. The view, and different sights you see while taking this walk is just amazing. I feel like it's a hidden gem, people know or heard about it. But they just never experienced the beauty of walking on the high line. Whether you're visiting or live in NYC. It's definitely a place to experience

    A beautiful initiative that brought life to this New York neighborhood by transforming and old elevated train line into a park. It provides great views both at the city and the river, with occasional glimpses at a golden Manhattan edge. Notice that smoking and drinking is forbidden and it is not allowed to walk over the vegetation. Definitely worth a visit.

    High Line is my favorite spot to stroll around by myself or with friends. The place is like a garden in the middle of the city. You can chill and relax at ease. High Line is a must see if you’re visiting NYC. You can get a really beautiful view when the sun is setting, just absolutely breathtaking. Just around the area are different art galleries, so that’s a plus. You can just easily check those places out since they’re just nearby.

    An NYC must see! Such a clean design and well kept grounds. Full of lush greenery, flowers and even a few outdoor art installations. We had a such nice long and peaceful walk but don’t worry there are plenty of benches along the path. Gorgeous views and unique vantage points throughout. So original absolutely loved it.

    Great way to pass a couple of hours in the city. An excellent alternative to the noise and bustle of the streets, this is a great way to navigate this part of Manhattan. Just under 1.5 miles long, there are several points at which you can enter and exit the walkway - we walked from Chelsea market to the other end at the Hudson River. There are great views along the way and there is a restoration project to show parts of the old railway tracks that once ran along there.
