loved the feeling of getting perspective above the hustle and bustle of street level in the city. less noise/cleaner air/happier people and the promise of some great plants and greenery when spring comes. also loved the sense of humor of the neighbors who put up signs/posters to communicate with us passers by. plenty of places to sit along the way,...

I say dusk is the magic hour for a visit. Stop in Chelsea Market for a snack before or after. People watching is great if you get tired of the views

I have been to the high line a couple of times, most recently in February 2017. There is nothing else like it in any city I have been to. It is nice to walk around and enjoy the fresh air without worrying about traffic or being stuck at "don't walk" signs. There are stairs located throughout the high line so... More

My family walked the High Line after doing a Circle Line Cruise whilst we were in the area. The experience was really different. and gives a great and different view of the city from the elevated position. The walk is full of different views and art and makes great use of what was a derelict railway. Fantastic experience!

We ended up here on Sunday afternoon and I loved it. It's been on my list to do how awhile everytime we come but it's always so chilly we always ended up skipping it. However, that Sunday the weather was magic! It was a great a walk, we didn't walk the entire thing but it's super cute. The art installations... More

I would recommend doing this on a day that it's not too busy with tourists (off-season during the week). It's a lovely way to see some of the city's neighborhoods and offers ways down to explore and walk around these and pick up the trail again when you wish to. You get a beautiful view of the city from above... More

Interesting walk over an old railway line going over the streets. Nice views and away from traffic although in the middle of Manhattan. Unfortunately a lot of construction going on so parts of the better views were covered up. I can imagine that in summer it will be overcrowded. We visited on a sunny day in February and there were...

This was the route from The Standard Hotel to Hudson Yards, and we walked it several days in February. It's like a boardwalk, and was packed on the last day which was warm and sunny. Even had a topless sunbather making a statement.

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.
