A breath of fresh air in the middle of the big city, The High Line is a 1.6 km (1 mi) linear park. It's built on a short section of an abandoned elevated railway that once ran along the lower west side of Manhattan. Redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway, the first few sections of the park opened in 2009. The elevated park features gardens, birdhouses, benches, artwork, and cafes, and offers views of the city and the Hudson River. View the exhibit of mirror sculptures designed to reflect the surrounding greenery. An installation of 700 purple and gray glass panes, calibrated to match the center pixel of 700 digital pictures taken every minute on the Hudson, creates an extended portrait of the river.

The High Line Reviews
The High Line is a very unique way to gain a different perspective of NYC. The art and architecture are amazing and changing views as you go 20 blocks is incredible. We love to stroll this park... more »
Personally I fell that it's not Manhattan that makes NYC the amirable city it is, but ideas that are bold and not always the commercially most lucrative ones - such as High Line Park. Re-Claiming... more »
I highly recommend the park. It’s just a great example how old, dysfunctional constructions can be recycled into something beautiful. The park has lots of benches, flowers, shrubs and trees. There are food booths and artistic sculptures. My family and I really enjoyed the park. It’s free and handicap friendly.
This Place use to be really dirty years ago. But now it’s beautiful! So clean and gloriously polished. I go here 2 times a year to see all of the glamorous galleries they have here and artworks.
