Top ways to experience The High Line
The area
Neighbourhood: West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.

Walking the high line
Oct 2021 • Friends
Since reviewing tourist info on the WEB I have wanted to walk the High Line. It turns out to be 1.75 miles long. We completed in 75 minutes. It was OK but not great. The views were OK. I think walking 7th , 8th. And broadway are more exciting walks.

unusual
Oct 2021
We enjoyed walking around the high line for a while on our trip. It is unusual as it must have been the "elevated L" at some point! But it has been refurbished into a sort of promenade.

A great way to get around
Oct 2021
This is a great way to walk through the city. You can get where you want to go on foot without the cars, bikes, and noise of the streets. We spent time in Chelsea over several days and walking along the high line was convenient and beautiful. There is such interesting plantings, art, and architecture all around. So much to look at and enjoy. Some of the narrower areas were more congested but I didn't find that a problem. Not only can you go from point A to B but you can take a break, there are so many comfy and semi-private little nooks to hang out and have your lunch or read or draw.

The High Line is one of our favorite parks in NYC because you see a lot
Nov 2020 • Solo
When strolling along this elevated walkway you get beautiful views of Manhattan as it connects several neighborhoods.
We started our walk at the Meatpacking District and walked all the way to The Vessel. Along the way we got off to see Little Island and Chelsea Market. Talking about two birds/one stone aka. seeing several locations during one walk :-)
The cool thing about this park is that it’s an abandoned rail line from the 1930’s that is transformed into a city park, the inspiration comes from a similar park located in Paris, France.
We spotted beautiful artwork, posh apartments and great architecture.
Unfortunately the park just allows pedestrians, so no biking or skateboarding is allowed. But that makes it even less stressful and more enjoyable for pedestrians.

The "High Line" is a MUST1
Oct 2021
While touring around Manhattan, one has to walk the High LIne. It is a wonderful, raised platform walk, in the Chelsea Neighborhood, that goes for about a mile from The Little Island-to-the shops at Hudson Bay. It gives you a great view of a lot of the different architecture in the buildings of the area. (We, even, had a little concert from one of the music schools in the area, performing on a patio right alongside the walkway.

A good walk
Sep 2021
It was a good walk on an elevated street, you can see buildings , trees and some flowers along the way. I went there on a weekday afternoon, so it wasn’t crowded. For weekend, a timed ticked is needed. The park is free. Since it has high rating, I felt this was a must do. If you a tourist and pressed on time, you can skip it.
