Walk along the High Line

exploration

A suspended public garden that opened in 2009, the High Line lets you take a walk up above major shopping arteries.

Built on a former railway freight line saved from demolition thanks to the action of a group of dedicated local residents, the High Line is ‘the longest green roof of the world' (2.3 km long, with a short extension under way to the north). The High Line allows retention of nearly 80% of rainwater and promotes the regeneration of nature in New York City.

Located on Manhattan's West Side, the walk starts at the intersection of Gansevoort and Washington Street in the trendy Meatpacking District and goes north through Chelsea to Hudson Yards. A green space to take a break, get in some jogging or just plain walking, this promenade will provide you with a peaceful escape from the urban chaos below. Have a seat on some simple street furniture, breathe in some fresh air, enjoy the many green spaces and performances in mini-amphitheatres, or take in the works of art. The High Line is open daily from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Try to visit during the week to avoid the crowds on weekends.
