The NYC walking tour of the High Line

This elevated stretch of greenery is one of NYC's most beloved walks—here's why

Advertising

We know. The High Line. Old news, right? Wrong! In September 2014, the converted railroad unveiled its final, northernmost section with greenery and benches. Dubbed the High Line at the Railyards, it runs from 30th Street and Tenth Avenue to 34th Street and Twelfth Avenue, and is fit to burst with sweet things to sniff and public art. Looking for things to do near the High Line? We've got those, too. And if you want to take your obsession even further, try strolling the empty High Line at sunrise.

• In September 2014, the converted railroad unveiled its final, northernmost section with greenery and benches. Dubbed The High Line at the Railyards, it runs from 30th and Tenth to 34th and Twelfth.

• To see the newest stretch of the High Line, take any westbound subway to 34th St and walk west toward the water. Enter at the 34th St entrance.

Stroll the entire 1.45-mile park toward the Meatpacking District. As the 30-foot-high green space’s farthest point west, it’s the best vantage point for taking in views of the Hudson and New Jersey, especially during sunsets.

• For an evening treat in summer and fall, get back to the park to join the astronomers who gather every week for Stargazing on the High Line(between W 13 and W 14 Sts, thehighline.org/activities/stargazing-on-the-high-line). You can peek through their telescopes and chat with them about the cosmos. It’s a really cute date, believe us.
