Elevated Park with
The High Line37
Why locals love it
A recent development, the High Line is 1-mile long public park built on a historic freight rail line that is elevated above street level, running from 34th Street down to Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District between 10th and 11th Avenues. Locals love it for the creative landscape and spectacular views, especially at sunset.
Why you should visit it
This is probably one of the most beautiful (and free!) spots you will enjoy in NYC. Free walking tours are offered during the warmer months, explaining the fascinating history and development of the High Line. Take a stroll, relax on a bench, and enjoy this truly unique space.
As you pass the windows of The Standard Hotel, you may notice exhibitionists flashing their "bits and pieces."
