New York City may close parts of the High Line Trail to prevent overcrowding. If unconventional is your thing, then High Line Park is for you. This is an awesome elevated rail track transformed to park in Manhattan. While less traditional than “normal”, this park offers wildflowers, greenery, and outdoor art installations. The High Line stretches from Manhattan’s Westside which includes Hell’s Kitchen and West Chelsea. Perfect for families or just for a sunset stroll, the views against the Hudson River will make you forget about the busy city below. A water feature lets kids (and the young at heart) splash, and a small grassy area in the new section tempts emerging walkers. The High Line is open from 7am-8pm daily, with the last entrance at 7:45pm. In April through the summer, the park is open until 10pm. The park has nine access points: Gansevoort Street, 14th and 16th streets (both with elevator access, 16th street is currently out of service), 18th Street, 20th Street, 23rd Street (elevator access coming, 26th Street. 28th Street and 30th Street (elevator access). Accessibility: There is parking along Washington Street near the Gansevoort Street entrance, but it is unclear where the closest designated handicapped-accessible spaces are. Elevators are available at Gansevoort Street, 23rd Street, and 30th Street entrances. There are wheelchair accessible restrooms at Gansevoort Street and 16th Street. The elevator at 14th Street is exit only. Elevators and wheelchair-accessible restrooms have been marked with waypoints. The trail surface is precast concrete planks, smooth, and typically at least 6 feet wide. The estimated grade is flat (1% or less), so this trail will likely be navigable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers. There are benches along the trail for resting. Show more
