This environmentally-friendly elevated park was built on an abandoned rail line that runs along Manhattan’s West Side in 2009. Explore alone, take a free tour provided by the facility on Tuesdays, or a private tour for a more thorough and flexible experience.
From the historic Meatpacking district to the cultural legends of Chelsea, the area surrounding the High Line has been an epicenter of industry and art for over a century.
Three decades after the trucking industry made the railroad obsolete, the park has become a symbol of repurposed urban space, and its sustainable practices follow suit.
Learn about the natural prairie garden from a horticulturalist or enjoy a classical concert. Find a full listing of guided activities on the website: thehighline.org/activities.
At 10th Ave near W 17th St there’s a cut-out lending a fantastic view of the city -- turn around and see if you can find the Statue of Liberty way off in the harbour.
Find vendors with seasonal treats near W 16th St or have a dining experience with a sweeping view of the Hudson River at the park’s open air cafe Terroir at The Porch.
Pleasant all times of the year, a balmy walk through the wildgrass in summer is the most ideal. The park is kept open later at night in summer months allowing for a view of the lit-up Manhattan skyline.
Book a private tour ahead or be sure to check the High Line's Twitter account to make sure the regular Tuesday walking tours haven’t been canceled due to weather.
There are 11 entrances from the Northernmost point of the railroad at W 34th St to the end at W 14th St. The entrances are equipped alternatively with stairs, elevators and/or ramps.

What People Are Saying About High Line
Most accommodating franchise. The staff very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Well worth the money. We had Brandon as our guide . He gave us the factual history mixed with his own recent personal experiences . Very enjoyable .
Busses were good, but some of the headphones/audio didn't work. Guides fun and informative.
Clean buses, easy check in, very informative tour guide. What's not to like? Another great day out thanks to GetYourGuide.
I really enjoyed this tour. They were good bikes and the route gave us the opportunity to see a fair slice of the city - not just Central Park but a good part of the west of town, Hudson River and port area. We were blessed with perfect weather and it was a small group, which always helps. (Having said that, I'm sure our guide, Pearl, would have taken equally good care of us had there been more of us.) As well as telling us some of the facts and history Pearl also shared something of her own relationship with some of the places we passed, so I had a feeling of being shown round New York on a bike by a real New Yorker. Which I was.
