The area
Address
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.

The High Line is a 1 1/2 mile-long elevated rail trail that’s been created on a former disused New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City.

Great view the plants meet the surrounding architecture.

Best to start at Ganesvoorte Street and walk to Hudson Yards.

Free attraction 🤙

Although the Highline only totals about 1.5 miles it takes one through three districts and offers wonderful views of NYC before ending at Hudson Yards. Along the way are gardens and lots of public art and benches for one to sit and enjoy.

Worth going for a walk along this - we went from 23rd to Hudson Yards - very good use of a redundant railway

Meander through the streets of NYC at a second story level. A fully landscaped walk with excellent views of the neighborhood. Start at Hudson Yards or Chelsea Market. Proably best to do it in the morning before it gets too crowded

Go there early in the morning to enjoy the way. It was so crowded when we were there. Seatings always taken, we just went through and couldn't really enjoy it. Don't miss to visit the Little Island near the end of the High Line!

You woud be making a mistake not to take in the High Line on any trip to NYC. It is just about the nicest part of the city and is an experience like no other. It takes you out of the urban canyons and allows you to peak into different areas of the west side, all the while surrounding you by the most beautiful and beautifully designed flowers, shrubs and trees. It is the best of the best.

I would walk this every day if I lived here. Great views, peaceful and beautiful gardens and paths. You’re on top of NY and I can imagine you would see something new every time you walk it. You also get a glimpse into NY’ers lives and homes!
