Top ways to experience The High Line
The area
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.

Great way to walk in NYC. Lots of fun. Worthwhile to do. Less busy times: weekdays and weekend mornings.

Fun walk
Jun 2021
We had a timed entry as we went on the weekend but there was hardly anyone there, so not necessary. Nice alternative walk instead of being on the street. Super clean.

Fabulous Walk
Jun 2021
It was our first time enjoying the high line. An early morning walk from Hudson Yards to Chelsea was fantastic, with several stretches where we were the only ones on the path.

One of the best things to do in NY CITY
Aug 2020 • Family
You HAVE to walk the high line...it is just a necessity. Beautiful wild flower gardens, fragrant shrubs and little benches and corners to sit and take it all in. And a ZAHA HADID building is on the past and a wonderful sight. A gift. Brilliant experience. But avoid weekend afternoons as it’s extremely crowded.

Great walk through the neighborhood
May 2021
This path is so beautiful and well maintained. We visited on a Monday morning - maybe 11 am. It was not crowded as I picture it might be on a weekend. The landscaping is amazing - lush, with art installations here and there. This is a treasure - a really nice (easy) walk from Hudson Yards to Chelsea Market. It was a quiet, clean respite from the noise of the city.

LOVE IT

This is perhaps my favorite thing in NYC. Its an old elevated train line that is redone as a pedestrian walkway. Its so awesome in the middle of the city. Do it!
