Description
This repurposing of the old railroad line running through the Meat Packing district of Manhattan has become an outdoor favorite for locals and tourists alike. With wood-planked floors and gratuitous ... Read more
landscaping, the High Line is a great place to escape the craziness of the city and enjoy a few quiet moments. If you love it, try visiting at night (or during the day, if you first visit at night) as the experience is wholly different. Because the park is yet-unfinished, new sections are constantly in the process of being opened-- be sure to visit frequently.

Really cool idea, very different take on the concept of what a park should be. Check out the part nearest Chelsea Market.

Excellent activity to do an a sunny day. Beautiful creation over old train rails where art, flora and great selfies spots are to be found.

This is a nice place to take a walk. You get to a nice view of the city and into New Jersey. It’s also free, which is a plus.

It is very nice place. Lovely walk you can go from 14th street all the way to 34th street on the west side. It was an old railroad.

Went for a night time stroll through the high line of a winter's night, quiet ,calm ,peaceful . I'm sure it's not the same during the summer months but I really enjoyed being able to take a breath for a minute and relax

The Highline is one of my favorite destinations while in NYC. During the summer it is filled with an abundance of wildflowers - winters a chilly and calm. Any time of the year is the perfect time to visit the Highline.

An inspiring reuse of this old, elevated trainline. It is a garden, and yet it is quintessentially urban.

At 1.45 miles long, the High Line is among the most unique walking experience you'll get in any city. Built on previously abandoned elevated railroad track, the park snakes it's way through 10th and 11th avenues amongst apartment buildings, century-old factories, and newly-constructed skyscrapers. You'll encounter lounge chairs, food + coffee stands, great views down 23rd street, and public art curated by Friends of the High Line organization.

If you're an architecture nerd, you're in luck because the High Line is known as "the architectural runway of the world". From the vantage point of the park you'll see buildings designed by Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry, and Cass Gilbert.

Pro-tip: walking the High Line at night, especially when the weather is warm is a great way to see the park at its calmest. The entire park is well-lit at night and park staff are working, so it's one of the safest places to experience a NYC landmark at night.

LOVED IT! Such a beautiful and amazing park! Apparently, it's an old freight track that is being slowly transformed in sections into a beautifully designed raised walking park. One of the most beautiful experiences in the city!

I adore High Line Park! Climb the steps up to an elevate park built on the old train tracks. You'll get a new perspective of the city! Plus, they've designed it so well with lush greenery, planters, and nice seating areas. It's a beautiful park to take a stroll.

One of Manhattan's newest gems. Enjoy a stroll through this abandoned elevated railroad line transformed into a beautifully designed park that winds through Manhattan's lower west side.

I love to see what the cities do when their things go out of date. New York is always very innovative, but the High Line is top notch. This raised park, made from an old train line, has amazing views of the west side. There are even viewing platforms for the shutterbugs in the crowd. The place is always full and the people who live there genuinely love spending time up there and so do I.

The High Line Park is a fun spot to walk around, Get exercise, and relax in the city. There is an area that is great for lounging and getting sun in the afternoon.

This floating sidewalk is built too bring a fresh perspective to this area of the city that is burgeoning - and it makes a great afternoon stroll. If you start at the top and work your way down (about a 1 hour walk) you will have some great people watching and see stunning views of buildings as you weave through new construction. The stroll will end near the Chelsea Market, a superb food hall and shopping area, which makes for the ideal place to grab a drink and snack after your walk along the high line.
