      The High Line is a city park in western Manhattan with a very distinctive location,design and history. Originally a freight rail line serving the meatpacking district, it has been creatively converted into a colorful and inviting place of refuge from the bustle of the city. It features, among other things, grassy areas for lounging, play areas for children, an assortment of botanical adornment, works of art, and places where you can sit and get an elevated view of the city. In some areas, the steel beams and rails of the original railroad structure are deliberately left exposed, but for the most part the park gives the impression of having been designed without the least bit of constriction by its long, narrow layout. Concerts and other special events make this a vibrant yet relaxing gathering spot for locals and tourists alike.

      If you go:
      Open daily from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. in the colder months, and until as late as 11:00 p.m. in the warmer months. No skates, skateboards, bicycles or smoking. A wide variety of food and beverage service is available. Wheelchair accessible at some entrance points.
