Top ways to experience The High Line
The area
Neighbourhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.

Great way to see the area
Dec. 2021
The High Line transformation is wonderful - loved this walk. It was very easy to do - and very easy to hop off, shop, dine and hop back on. Highly recommend this park.

Highlight of our trip
Nov. 2021
Nice walk in the middle of the city. It was very windy, but really nice to see the neighborhood & some of the art pieces along the way.

An oasis of calm
Nov. 2021
An oasis of calm away from the frenetic madness that is NYC.
Gentle strolling, plenty of places to stop , rest and take in the views of street scenes, varies architecture, the innovative planting, modern sculpture, street art and the rest of Manhattan
Glad we visited

Great views, but very busy even at an off-peak time
Nov. 2021
A really nice idea, and some spectacular views when you approach Hudson Yards. Pretty busy even at off-peak hours though.

Early Birds Get the Worms

Pro tip: Arrive when it opens, at 7am, for a sublime experience. Not many people are out and about, except for the volunteers who keep the park in tip-top shape. Watch the rising sun reflect along the windows of the skyscrapers - the East Coast version of being in the Grand Canyon. I wasn't expecting to be blown away by this park, but I was. A great antidote to the wide-open expansiveness and flurry of activity that is Central Park. A yin to the yang in NYCs crown jewels of public spaces.

Great views and free!

My title sums it up! So interesting, and again all sorts of views to see! Maybe a few boards at particular view points would be good, with explanations.

Visit the High Line Any Time of Year

I enjoyed my visit to the High Line in November. Although I must admit, that I enjoyed my previous visit to the High Line in August more. If you are visiting both Hudson Yards and Chelsea Market, then the High Line is a easy walk from one to the other.

Great park to take a nice long walk. Scenic views everywhere from cool graffiti, interesting architecture, fall foliage in November, open air art, and people and pet watching.

Fun! Beautiful walk, we enjoyed seeing the greenery and the old tracks. The kids loved the idea of walking up high. The views were great!
