Friends said this was a must do, and it was. I imagine it is amazing in other seasons. In winter a bit barren but concept is great. The area was so ugly before. The idea should be adopted more widely. In NZ the rail tracks have formed the base for amazing bike tours

What a wonderful space in New York. Spring and summer must be beautiful on the High Line, but winter is special also. The information plaques tell you about the history of the project and stairs in various areas lead you to the streets for great shops and food. You can get your food to go if you like and bring it back up the stairs for a picnic on the High Line!

My nephew is an architect, he told us about this spot as something not to be missed and he was 100% right. As unusual as lovely, this ingenious way to recicle the railway infra proved to have changed the neigborhood the green way providing a completely differente viewpoint of NYC. Absolutely recommended.

A walk along the High Line is becoming part of doing Manhattan. The day we walked it was a warm sunny summer day so it was crowded. But if you don't like crowds you should visit northern Maine, not Manhattan. The walk itself is as interesting as the history of the High Line. Gone is the experience of finding a grass land on a derelict rail line in the middle of a great city. In its place is an opportunity to see the city from a different perspective several stories above the streets.

Taking a stroll on an old railroad el that has been converted to a parklike walkway is a phenomenal idea, especially considering the water views and it's free.
