High Line, an elevated pathway running continuously through 23 blocks on the Manhattan’s West Side, is a comparatively recent attraction, completed only in 2014. Before it officially became a park, the High Line was a railway used by freight trains to deliver goods to the Downtown and Meatpacking Districts. In fact, the original rails are still there, incorporated right along the newly planted green footpath.
The height of the elevation is that of a two story building, from where you can enjoy some incredible views of the Hudson River, the 10th Avenue with its numerous cafes, bars, hotels and residential constructions, and from where you can even spot the famous Empire State Building in the distance.
The High Line starts on the corner of Gansevoort St and Washington St and ends between 34th St and 11th Avenue. You can access the park at any point along the way, as there are numerous entry and exit points.
