I deliberately did no previous research on this as I like to be surprised. My other half loves walking in unusual areas in the UK which tend to be off the beaten track disused railway lines so when he mentioned this one I had uncomfortable visions of us trekking along a banned piece of land somewhere in New York that...

This is a must do...but I have to admit it was so much busier than 2 years ago....and much longer. Great views of city life.

I'd never heard of this before seeing it, and only saw it because our tour group was ahead of schedule and the driver thought it'd be a nice stop. We didn't have as long here as I would've liked. But what we saw of it, we enjoyed. I'd love to return and go for a nice long walk on it.

If you have not done this walk it is a must to add to any NY visit. On a sunny day it is the perfect traffic free stroll. Lots of entry and exit points along the route.

If the weather's looking good then this a wonderful free activity and unconventional way to see the city from an elevated railway track, reused and converted into an urban park. You wander through a district in New York which is being gentrified and so contains many contemporary and innovative buildings. You can stop halfway and visit the many art galleries... More

By all means, walk or stroll from end to end. The views by the river are pretty impressive not to mention the art works scattered all over.

On a sunny day, this is a most enjoyable way of seeing the west side of lower manhattan. Beautifully maintained, this safe and gentle 1.5 mile walk affords lovely views of the city. Worth combining with a visit to the aircraft carrier / museum moored not far from the beginning of the walk.

The Highline captures natural and art in a matching manner. There is no such an adorable way to spend part of your day than strolling around, picking an ice cream and feeling like you are in the right place!

I'm used to walking in Texas on streets and walkways. This was a pleasure. Places to rest even a spot for drinks. It honestly was a lovely walk away from all the noise of NY. Great way to spend a few hours with a lot to see. Highly recommended...

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
