The High Line

The High Line Travel Guide | New York City | A guide to experiencing New York City from above for over 30 blocks at The High Line.

The High Line…

Kicking off my Big Apple series with one of my favourite New York landmarks, The High Line. Last time I was in this amazing city the High Line was still under construction so it was wonderful to finally experience this walk one sunny spring afternoon.

Spanning over 30 blocks this freight rail line turned park is a perfect example of public spaces done well (as opposed to when they go horribly wrong as discussed here). With spots to stop and meet with friends (or have some quality alone time) and postcard worthy vantage points that are second only to the Top Of The Rock in my opinion. Let’s just say if I were a New Yorker I would definitely incorporate this walk into my daily routine.

Architecture has long been a strong source of inspiration for me so it goes without saying that the vast amount of symmetry and lines reminiscent of my favourite print on the buildings, city streets and art works below had me right in my happy place. Inspiration really is all around if you are open to looking for it.

Location:

The High Line, Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues.

I really want to visit New York and see this for myself! It looks incredible and seems like you had beautiful weather too, last time I was there it was snowing!

    This was my third time visiting NYC and I must admit whilst the snow is magical during Christmas time I very much enjoyed experiencing the occasionaly sunny spring days. We really lucked out with the weather that day! The High Line really is worth visiting though regardless of the weather. Particularly with the Whitney nearby.
