The High LineParks
Elevated Public Park
Entrances at Gansevoort St., 14th, 16th, 23rd and 30th streets

The High Line is a beautiful elevated park and walkway that meanders throughout the Meatpacking and Chelsea. Greenery, colorful flowers and a great view make walking The High Line a very different experience than walking the streets of New York! In the summer you’ll find bar set-ups and small markets along the line. Depending on your speed, walking the High Line will take about 30-60 minutes.

The origins of the elevated tracks date back nearly 100 years to when freight trains were elevated to allow for safer travel into Manhattan and easier access directly into several factories which is why the line runs right through several buildings. By the 1980s however the line was completely unused by trains. In the last ten years it has undergone a transformation from an overgrown unused eyesore into a park and one of the more geographically and historically interesting, geo parks in the city.
