The highline was extended recently and we decided to visit. It was a beautiful day and like the original section provided a relaxing walk above the city streets filled with beautiful landscaping and artwork. All in all another masterpiece of NYC with which to take...More

The building is empty and looks to me like is going to be knocked down. We came from east side so just trying to avoid someone else coming for no reason

A little piece of heaven in a busy city. Some great views of the city with plenty of shaded areas and seating along the way.

Nice place, good food, cheap prices. Great sandwiches. Vegan options. If you are visiting the Highline, when hungry, don't miss this place.

Stopped by for brunch here with friends on our last trip to NYC. It's a charming, cute diner that looks like an old train car. Menu is simple, but everything looked good. Typical diner food (slightly more upscale though). Ordered the Highliner wrap (which to...More
