The High Line represents how much work it takes to make something look like no trouble at all.  This impressively landscaped space features rotating art installations, water features, and benches.  It began life as a response to the avenue's reputation as "Death Avenue" in the 19th Century.  Back in the day, locomotives came all the way down the tip of the island, and New Yorkers, then as now, liked to jaywalk with the grim reaper.  After first hiring cowboys to ride ahead of the trains to warn the folks, who of course were ignored, the city created an above the streets rail line to separate the trains from the street before they could separate the limbs from the people.  When the High Line finally ended its useful industrial life, the weed-strewn structure inspired the park of today.


It's a trip to walk this line.  Fabulous views in an historic neighborhood.  Lots of swallows sweeping around the old warehouses during the right seasons make for a gay old time.  You've got to see it to believe it.

a delightful walk above 10th Ave, surprisingly peaceful above the traffic and chaos, experience a stretch of nature in a big city

What an awesome concept. I loved strolling on the high line. Met some interesting people. The views are amazing. If you have never done this...put it on your bucket list!

The high line was very fun for me and my family- and that's coming from a native New Yorker. It is not very high up and feels very safe, so there is no need to worry if you are afraid of heights. There was evidently so much art and talent involved in making the High Line such an interesting park that even young kids are not bored. It is always nice to have a breath of nature in such a busy city- even if people crowd to see it.

Situated in the Meatpacking district, this old high rise park has a lot to offer. I personally went on a date here a few weeks ago. The weather was nice, but more so the walk was beautiful. The walk is very romantic. It has a semi boardwalk feel with patches of grass here and there. Along the walk, there are private "dead end" sidewalks that make for a really good kissing spot.

I like the history behind the high line as well. It used to be an old subway line. In the early 1900's it was decommissioned and turned into a beautiful park.

Tip: There is an awesome ice-cream store in the meatpacking district called Popbar, you gotta check it out if you are walking the high rise.


Such a great place to find little pockets of wonder!
You can enjoy it with a clsuter of folks all afternoon, or get lost there for an hour by yourself for the entire day. Whether it's enjoying the lights of the city at the darkest time of night, or taking in the sunshine at high noon, the HIGH LINE as a little something for everyone at any time, day or night!

A few active neighborhood engagers saw something in the wildly seeded, abandoned elevated tracks on the lower west side of the city.   The partnership they built with the city and private partners selected a Dutch plantsman who forms with the shapes and colors of things living, breathing and leaving seeds and great winter shapes.  The meandering walk includes unique seating that moves on the tracks and spectator seating over city streets.  Never repetitive, the walk is also dotted with art (which sometimes speaks to us..really!)


A pleasure in every season, and especially in the rain.

Wonderful place to walk & enjoy the landscaping, sculpture & gelato !!
