The High Line park

One of the most popular attractions of New York City, the High Line is an iconic park and pathway built on the elevated rail line that runs through Hudson Yards towards Chelsea.

Situated on the West Side of Manhattan, High Line park comes under the aegis of New York City. 

It is a collaborative public space and guarantees an experience with art installations, performances and multiple food options to keep you engaged. 

This greenway runs for 1.45 miles and features various plant and tree species. 

The High Line is a walking distance from the Edge observation deck

What makes it unique?

The High Line Park’s construction sets this park and pathway apart from the rest of New York attractions. 

An out-of-order 1980s rail track was broken down and converted into this long walkway. 

High Line park has a linear design and you move along an almost pathless way with greenery spurting from various parts and corners. 

A collaboration between James Corner Field Operations and Piet Oudolf has turned this ruin into a reclaimed wonder of nature and architectural beauty.

When does it open?

The park is open to the public every week from 7 am to 7 pm in winter. 

During spring, this time extends to 10 pm and remains open till 11 pm for summers. 

How long does it take?

Entry to the High Line Park is free. 

The best way to experience High Line is by wandering along the path and stopping at whatever attracts your attention. 

A walking tour of the High Line can take between 15 to 40 minutes. 

But, of course, if you take food breaks and stop in between, it can take longer.To know more about things to do around High line Park visit https://www.thehighline.org/
