Fun views of the City

The park looked pretty in early spring with many flowering trees. Provides some interesting views of the city.

I do enjoy going to the west side and walking the high line, however, some of the walkways are narrow and it's always overcrowded with people that don't share well. You will often find people walking hand in hand in the narrowest of parts making it frustrating. Also, usually all of the seating is occupied by sunbather, campers or people... More

If you possibly can, walk the entire length of the High Line which gives you an entirely new perspective on the City.

This 'park' was bigger than I expected. Even though it was quite busy, it was still enjoyable. Although I guess it might be advisable to visit this place in the morning. When I was here I was unable to get off the high line, because a few of the stairs down were closed. So you might have to double back... More

...to provide a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the outdoors and some nature in the middle of a bustling metropolis. A non-profit entity has taken over an abandoned section of an elevated train track and turned it into a public walking park. There are plantings, places to sit, nice walkways and an art museum at the "end of the... More

We only heard about this attraction from a friend as we were in NYC and it was a great way to walk around the west side of midtown and down towards Chelsea. Nice and peaceful walk between buildings with some great views.

As spring is (finally) returning to the northeast, I am reminded of one of our favorite walks in Manhattan...The High Line. What we love about it is that you can choose a number of starting points and then walk in the direction that "calls" you. We tend to walk the full length, either from the north or the south and...

High Line is a re-generated high level railway line now turned into an interesting park route within the old dockside areas of NYC. With the background of NY street noise and massive construction projects along the route it cannot be described as peaceful or a tranquil haven within the city however especially in the Springtime the route is lined with...

It was great to stroll along the path and look at the city from a different perspective. We capped off the day with this walk. Started at Chelsea Piers with a 3 hour architectural tour, followed by lunch at Chelsea market. Highly recommend!

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.
