A public park built on a 1.45-mile-long elevated rail structure, that used to be in operation as a freight rail line from 1934 till 1980. A similar structure exists in Paris, known as the Promenade Plantée.
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.
Great way to walk around the city and take in not just views but some history of NYC as well.
Designed by one of the greatest NY Architects - Diller and Scofidio, The HighLine is such a great example of repurposing unused city space into a usable and amazingly designed public park- slicing right through the best parts of the city- from 34th Street all the way to the Meatpacking- I suggest…
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…
The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on a former New York Central Railroad spur on the west side of Manhattan in New York City.
A converted raised railroad track built into a winding garden path with some art and snacks along the way
Relatively new attraction in the historic meatpacking district. Right next to Chelsea Market -- perfect for a stroll on a sunny day.
Very unique park, great place to take stroll. Multiple Entrances/ exits to the park. If you decide to go here, make sure to also hit up Chelsea market

“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.”
