It was a cloudy day when we walked The High Line but as there was no rain it was lovely. The views are nice and it is a nice break from walking on the streets of the city.

This was a nice walk. We enjoyed the city views. Our guide tells us it is a nice walk on a sunny day, but expect crowds if the weather is nice.

As a New Yorker, I am totally baffled at the press that the High Line gets! It is really nothing special! There is nothing much to do except walk it. It's not a particularly convenient place to get to either unless you go to the Whitney Museum. I would rather take a walk in beautiful Central Park any day! And... More

The Highline is a wonderful use of the old train tracks of Downtown Manhattan. It's perfect for a short walk or if you have some time to spare, walk the entire HL. It starts in the 30's and ends in the Chelsea area near Gansevoort street. The trees and flowers are in bloom, art installations change often, pop-up vendors are... More

This park is amazing, you can enjoy a nice walk with very trendy designs and street art. You can end your walking through the park in Chelsea market to grab something to eat.

This reclaimed overland train line is a beautiful and calming walk across the city. We followed the line to the Chelsea Market and it made a change to get away from the busy city streets. Highly recommend the line and the Chelsea market

Unfortunately we chose to walk The High Line on a cold, dreary, windy day in NYC. I would not recommend it unless the weather is good. Not much to see in March. We have been in here the end of Sept and it was beautiful. Very interesting architecture and views of city skyline and Hudson River etc.. Fortunately, we escaped... More

Be sure to walk the high line while you are in New York. It is beautifully maintained and you have a great views. Get a picture with the sleepwalker! He looks so real!

Wow this was fantastic... we headed to the High Line early morning, traveling on the subway from Midtown to 14st then walked along to Chelsea market for Brunch in 'Friedmans'... (Chelsea Market is very cool, it is an old biscuit factory turned in to a trendy place to eat, definitely worth as stop). Once we had made our way from... More

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.
