The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.

    Do it
    Even on a rainy day this was time well spent- an oasis outside the city filled with beautiful plays and art work. Bonus- high end shopping at the end. We walked the whole trail and went into the mall and then hit Chelsea Market for lunch on our way back.

    An urban revitalization project
    The High Line was an abandoned freight line many years ago that was converted into a tree-lined parkway above the streets. It has not lost its charm. The place makes it a convenient location above car traffic to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

    Great walk
    Beautiful walking area! Lots of nice art and city scenes. Great break from traffic and crosswalks! Even got a sight of the Statue of Liberty from the high line around Chelsea Market.

    Would be nicer in warmer weather!
    My wife was determined to see this attraction even though it was rainy, cold, and high winds. She enjoyed it more than me as I thought it was too crowded to enjoy the walk and scenery. Anywhere along the way, you can exit to grab lunch a drink, etc. There were some "street vendors" who were selling art objects and paintings of the area. Some of the trees need trimming as you would have to duck under some limbs and they were very wet due to the rain.

    A peaceful walk enriched by unusual views of city murals and a variety of walkway plants
    We walked the High Line after taking a boat trip from Pier 62, as it’s located nearby. It’s a peaceful walk among well tended plants and trees, offering unusual views of city buildings, streets and community artwork. Combine the walk with a visit to Chelsea market to pick up clothes and crafts designed locally. The high line can get busy so you need to relax and be patient, it’s not for rushing. Highly recommended.

    Don't miss the High Line!
    Missed seeing this last trip to NYC 12 years ago, and it was worth the wait! We took the free tour on Saturday morning, don't know what more a paid tour could offer. The HL was also a convenient path to take when it was on the way and beat surface streets and traffic lights. It was Memorial Day weekend, so it was crowded, but still very enjoyable. Don't miss it!

    A REAL DELIGHT
    High Line in New York is a long, stretching park set upon an elevated train track in the middle of Manhattan. My wife and I visited New York for two days as part of a larger cruise tour and really enjoyed the experience of the High Line. Located principally in the Meatpacking District, the High Line is a real joy to access.

    Love the architecture!
    What an amazing walk! The landscape is beautiful, the surrounding architecture is inspiring....what a wonderful afternoon. Take the time to visit Little Island, the artificial park built in the Hudson River. The path takes you through a beautiful Chelsea neighborhood.

    Will Return After Peak Tourist Season
    Never miss a chance to walk The High Line when I am in the city and in the area. While we enjoyed our stroll along beautifully landscaped grounds and public art - Saturday afternoon in June was not an ideal day due to the crowds. The weather was glorious and seemed as though everyone had the same idea of walking The High Line!

This is such a cool and different option in NYC. We hadn't been to New York for 13 years, so this was new to us and having read the reviews were intrigued and it didn't disappoint.
So nice to walk around with streets to cross, looking at the views of some of the most chilled places in New York and lovely architecture and arts to boot.
You can drop out at different points, pop to see Chelsea market for example or some of the piers or even Little Island like we did.

NYC can be a busy place to be, so taking some time out to walk the high line was great. And unusually for New York, free!

Lovely way to spend half an hour seeing the city from a different perspective, and ending up at Chelsea Market.

Unfortunately there was parts of the high line closed for maintenance when we were in NY so we couldn’t walk the full length. What we could walk was enjoyable and nicer than walking the sidewalk.

Also has some of the nicest public restrooms, which are hard to come by.

Great walk in a middle of NYC. Can get busy so maybe it is better to go early or later on in the afternoon. Really enjoyed it and would recommend.

Not sure what the fuss is about, dull dead vegetation, massive crowds, boring views. Mildly better than walking on the pavement

An enjoyable walkway with great views of the city. Clean and well kept and easy to find. Made for an enjoyable early evening stroll when we first arrived into NYC.

An urban oasis that offers stunning views, vibrant greenery, and a unique perspective of the city. It's a must-visit destination for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and experience a peaceful stroll above the streets.

Having been to this park on my previous visit to New York, I really wanted to revisit and experience it again. The winter season offers a different feel for sure, but it is still a very pleasant stroll through NYC with so many pieces of architecture along the way that catch the eye. It can get a bit crowded on a warm(ish) and sunny day, so come prepared...

Half of the High line was closed and the other half was ok as was better than walking by the road but the vegetation was all dead and looked uncared for- Maybe because we are coming out of winter. It's great to have used the old rail track but I wouldn't say its a must do
