This is a great walk. We did it on a whim after eating dinner at at a pizza joint near Chelsea Market. It was a perfect fall evening and the walk didn't disappoint. After having spent the day battling the crowds on the sidewalk, it was really nice to stroll along the elevated walk and look at the city lights.

This was created from a disused tram line raised above the streets of Manhattan. It is a community project and has created a peaceful place to walk. The total length of the walk is about 3 miles and there are street performers, places to sit or lie out and relax, and it has benn planted with an interesting selection of... More

My girlfriend had done this walk before and raved about it. So she took me there and it was such a pleasant walk with some nice views. It did tend to get crowded on the path here and there but it is New York and people walking is something you need to get used to!

Highly recommend visiting this interesting and unique park. Check out its history as a railway for transporting meat from the meat packing district. Cool vibe, very lively place, and great views of the city all along the way. Interesting art installations along the way as well! (We walked all the way from the southern starting point and northwards to the... More

Starting the walk with breakfast at Chelsea Markets and them making my way uptown to 34th street on a brisk winter morning is a great way to start the day! Above the city, with amazing views of Chelsea piers and the Empire State Building, the high line is a relaxing way to see the city.

Used the High Line to walk to the Whitney. Even on a snowy January day it was full of people but far fewer than at street level. Lovely views, some interesting art along the way, even the dormant gardens were good to see. But WINDY!

Everyone had the same idea on a warmer than normal Sunday, so we were walking with the crowds, but it was still a lovely way to see the city on a sunny afternoon. As a native New Yorker I loved the unique feel of this greenspace!

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.
