Great way to tour some of the city above all the traffic, view some sights and get some exercise. Some interesting art, music and political statements along the way. Can be very crowded. Enjoy!

Got a late start so we only went maybe halfway. Beautifully done park! Lots of seating Alo g the way, rest rooms available and places to shop and snack. Must be gorgeous in the warmer weather when the trees and gardens are in bloom. However, sooo crowded!

As far as a city walk this was really cool. There are gardens and art all throughout the high line. There are plenty of stairs to get off and explore the different neighborhoods. Easy and fun walk.

Very relaxing walk. Is a mini forest in the heart of a very active city. Great way to relax half a little something to eat and just contemplate on the meaning of life. You need to relieve some stress and scape the hectic city life for a bit? Great come here.

Lovely walk downtown with some interesting views of the neighborhood and cool architectural structures built on an abandoned elevated railway. Also some nice gardens. Good place to relax and watch the sunset. Worth a walk if you don’t mind a leisurely pace (it’s narrow and there are big crowds usually) and being in close proximity to bees with little room to run, ha.

I used to love the High Line. It was my favorite place to walk before heading home from work. Now it's just over crowded with tourists who stand around and stop the flow of traffic. You can't walk here anymore, it's a place to park yourself and enjoy the plant life over Manhattan.

Its just walking, can't be considered as a hike. Highline is free elevated park and has flee markets in summer and concerts do happen.

Beautiful! Always came here when used to work in the city. It’s usually crowded in the evening.

Normally, urban trails seem as if they are stuck in the city. The High Line is special because it feels like it's part of the city, weaving through the buildings of Manhattan. The elevated pathway captures the bustle of NYC yet still feels removed from the hubbub. A real surprise and treat for NYC visitors.

What a great way to repurpose an extended piece of an abandoned elevated rail line. It was very crowded on a sunny April mid afternoon so it's hardly a relaxing walk - must visit at a quieter time of day. The landscaping and periodic rest spaces are nicely designed. And the elevated view of street crossings is very cool. I recommend this walk when you are in the area.

Really interesting concept: an elevated "park" that has a variety of trees and native plants. Little shade though.

Really enjoyed running on the High Line. Gets you up and off the streets so you can enjoy the scenery. Got there just as it was getting crowded so time of day is important. All concrete on top of old train tracks. Lots of construction as this area has lot of growth because of the trail. Well worth doing.

Very fun NYC walk. Keep in mind that it can close during snowy/icy conditions. Extra beautiful in the spring when flowers/trees are blooming.

One of the most wonderful places to walk in NYC. Can be a bit crowed at times.

You don’t come to NY for the hiking trails. This is basically just an elevated sidewalk, crowded & noisy, but it does have greenery & places to sit, along with some interesting architectural views.

Spent a lovely day on the High line. It was very beautiful and peaceful. Beautifully done and I highly recommend everyone go and enjoy the beauty!!!

This is something I recommend to everyone visiting the city. It provides a different view of the city and was a great way to repurpose the old railroad.

This is such a wonderful example of the repurposing power of landscape architecture. It's a very flat walk for all ages, skill levels and elevators provide universal access for all to enjoy.

this is one of my favorite places to go in NYC. it gets really crowded, though, so push to go early early or during a light rain or something.

Pretty cool space. I love that this area could be turned into some kind of open space above street level. Busy and popular!

Very easy path to follow with plenty of places to stop, sit and enjoy. Now that the weather is warming up there are plenty of people on the High Line, and when we walked the High Line the crowd was huge, yet the noise was minimal. There are also a handful of food/drink stations along the way as well as a couple of gift shop kiosks and a few street vendors. I suggest you take your time, enjoy the quietness and beautiful landscape.

It’s cool because it’s unique - you’re above the city! That said it’s also usually very crowded and not super green or spacious - it’s pretty narrow. Has some cool sunbathing chaise-lounges that you can chill in on the way, plus a lot of cool sculptures! ☺️
