I loved walking the High Line. And of course, ending at the Chelsea market was superb qnd solved my dinner question. Don't miss out on this, though it is crowded with tourists, it's worth it. The line is unique and beautifully designed.

The highlife is a fantastic walkway from 30th street down to 14th street with entry/exit points on the way. Elevated walkway which was an old railway line taken care of by the 'friends of the highline'. He staff do a fantastic job of keeping he walkway clean and safe and in bloom. There are several shop kiosks along the way... More

Well Done New York - an old disused railway line that used to transport goods around the city has been preserved and restored into a high level walkway - brilliant idea and such a calming place in an oasis of busyness - love it !

We started at 34th street, the entrance is near the 'Megabus' pick up, just down from the subway (7) The park is really well layed out, lots of planting, seating, interesting art, it's easy to walk and would be suitable for a wheelchair or stroller. You see a great mix of old and new architecture, at the end we went... More

The high line is a must for anybody travelling to newyork, It gives the opportunity to see quirky little building and art work along the way. A great view of jersey can also be seen from the high line along with helicopters taking off and landing.

The concept is really cool, and some of the views were interesting, but I don't see why people make such a huge deal about this "attraction". You go up, you walk, you see a few things, and then you descend. Its really no big deal.

Nostalgic walk through old railway lines where nature has taken over, offering a different view of the city.

We walked the majority of this after lunch at Chelsea market. This was very well done as a functional space that artistically represents its past. Also, great views of city streets from a slightly elevated level.

We were told about the High Line and walked the stretch. Beautiful even on a sunny December day. Be sure to read the historic photo panels to appreciate it. You can see why New Yorkers love it. Ending up at Chelsea Market is a great reward.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
