A once-abandoned elevated train track that was transformed into a crazy-popular, bucolic walkway. It’s 1.45-mile park’s gardens, taking in sweet views of the Hudson, the Whitney Museum of Art plenty of pretty flowers and plants that are mostly indigenous to the region.
Pleasant walk admiring some of New York’s finest architectural developments. Walk by some amazing art galleries as well!
Great way to walk around the city and take in not just views but some history of NYC as well.
Relatively new attraction in the historic meatpacking district. Right next to Chelsea Market -- perfect for a stroll on a sunny day.
There’s something uniquely New York about this aerie. Built on an abandoned railway track, the space is ingenious in its use of reclaimed industrial detritus, a necessity in footage-starved Manhattan. But what we like best is how the pathway takes you above the city while keeping you rooted in urban…
This is a great way to see some of the city- this is an elevated greenway. One of the entrances is right next to the Whitney Museum!
The High Line is a wonderful old railway park perfect for taking a stroll and enjoying panoramic Hudson River views when the weather is fair, or, treat yourself to a rich cultural experience by visiting the new Whitney Museum of Art located on the southern end (downtown side) of the High Line…
A converted raised railroad track built into a winding garden path with some art and snacks along the way
The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. Saved from demolition by neighborhood residents and the City of New York, the High Line opened in 2009 as a hybrid public space where visitors experience nature, art, and design.

“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”
“Their permanent collection is incredible, they have Starry Night by Van Gogh. Check their website for what's currently showing. They have free Fridays, so check the website for the time too!”
“I can spend an entire day in just one section. Make sure to get the audio guide. ”
“My favorite museum due to its size, not too overwhelming! Great views and located in a beautiful park of the city, falling between the West Village and Meatpacking district. Lots of great places to eat and explore, I'd visit the Highline (outdoor park) afterwards! The Whitney is for American art, FYI!”
