The High Line

There are few places more pleasant than the High Line in NYC on a sunny afternoon, no matter the season. This elevated park is one of Manhattan’s most popular destinations, and it's easy to see why. A rail track that went out of use in 1980, the High Line was resurrected as a 1.45-mile-long green space in 2009, running from the Meatpacking District to the northern edge of Chelsea. Today it’s an urbanite’s playground planted with wildflowers and grasses, offering walkers a panorama of the bustle below that makes the park simultaneously removed from the city and an inextricable part of it. Check out our essential guide here for our pick of the best events, public art, food and drink offerings, and things to do on and around this airy strip of West Side heaven.
