The High Line is one of my favorite in Ney York city. If you're in the middle of shopping stress and endless concrete, enjoy a time out at the High Line. You can walk on old rail tracks and in the middle of plants, flowers and gras. If you're tired just sit down on a bench and enjoy the music... More

This is a great way to walk around NY without dealing with traffic lights, crosswalks, stores. It provides lovely views and on a clear day you can even see the statue of Liberty. However, on a nice day, it's also very crowded so the sense of being in nature is blocked by so many people - it's NYC!

Such a nice place to take a walk in the city. Start at Chelsea market and then walk the length of it and shortly after you will be back in Manhattan

My kids and I strolled the length of the High Line last Memorial Day weekend. Its south end was close to the Hudson River with view of the Statue of Liberty. If you have kids, you'll want to visit the water park at the south end. There are great restaurants in the village at the end of the line as... More

This is set on an old elevated train line through some newer residential areas of manhattan. An easy stroll with plenty to see. It took us to areas of manhattan we hadn't ventured and felt like you were away from the city for a little while. It starts at 33rd and 11th and winds through the arts district.

I'd never have thought to see this green space above the streets. Would definitely recommend a walk. Only thing is, be aware that it closes in the evening (at 9:30 or 10) so try not to go too late

Our favorite place to walk other than Central Park in NYC. Beautifully designed & landscaped. Attention to detail for the visitor with scenic views of the Hudson River & eclectic city streets & architecture on both sides. Rest areas throughout the six mile walk available to sit & have lunch or just people watch.

Really liked walking along the high line. Offers interesting views of the city. Part of it was closed due to construction or weather, but still really nice to way to get around.

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.
