We stepped off the Big Bus to walk part of The High Line and weren't disappointed. An unusual way to view the city and walk between the buildings. A nice peaceful break from the hustle and bustle at street level.

Unique an alternative way to view a city. Using an old railway line to carry walker's around the city above the hustle and bustle. Nice views, plenty of space and some nice cafes etc along the route. Make sure you have your camera.

Walked the high line twice during my stay. Loved it. Joined at west 30th on 10th ave. walked all the way to the end seeing NYC from a different perspective. Lots of places to sit and relax. Can only imagine what it might be like in summer when everything is in bloom. Do it!

Walking the old Rail tracks above the City is fast becoming one of the 'go-to' events on our regular itinerary

A rare view of NYC with ever changing & interesting glimpses of the myriad features of this part of the city... understandably one of the top must see/do attractions. 1 - 1 1/2 hours is comfortably enough time for the walk. Grab a Coffee,then get the 'A' line Subway up to 190th St... head to The Cloisters on northern tip... More

This was and is a nice idea to repurpose an abandoned rail track. I can't say it is a must see or do, however, it is a place to walk off your calories and enjoy some outside time in an elevated part of the Manhattan. Keep your expectations somewhat realistic and you'll not regret a walk amongst the buildings and... More

This is simply an above-ground sidewalk that goes from downtown to uptown in the Chelsea area. We went in February and, honestly, it just wanted all that fantastic. There are some neat spots along the way to get some good pictures and see funky architecture, but that's it. I wouldn't go out of my way to do this.

I walked the High Line with friends this past October. A delightful day meandering, exploring natural gardens, artwork and exiting at the Whitney Museum. We started at 34th St. The beginning or the end. Whatever you make it.

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.
