Top sights in New York City
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
We found the pass to be worth it when we added up the costs of what we did and what it would have cost to do them by paying separately. The pdf information the pass provided on the 100 included attractions was most helpful and maybe we could have gotten that from other sources but it worked out well for us to plan our itinerary from the list of things the pass would pay for. Not all of our activities that we did in NY were covered, but that still was OK. You need to calculate how much you think you're going to do on your trip to determine if it's good for you. We did not feel like we were running all over to do things to make it worth it, but we were busy most days all day long.
I got the 3 day uptown, mid-town, downtown, 1 hour cruise and night time package with entry into a museum plus a get 1 hour free biking around the park. Def worth doing - I stayed in Manhattan Time Square. I was there for 5 days but during my package period was unable to get back to do everything I'd wanted so...FYI, if you do the same and want to "extend" for another day, just go into the Big Bus office and get an upgrade for $20 as opposed to buying another one day ticket.
Excellent tour, did all three in a row, we really enjoyed in it. Especially I would like to highlite your colleague Sherwood, extremely funny guy, with thousand of little story's along a way, about every corner of New York, and with great sense of humor, to make a tour differ from the other one's. Bravo ! Greetings from Belgrade, Serbia ! Jovan
It was a good experience except that some buses did not have air on one of the hottest days Also, the schedules were not as advertised. Instead of 15-20 minutes, it was more like 45 minutes. Staff were very helpful, as well as customer service.
We bought the pass and I was a bit worried that we wouldn’t get our monies worth but it exceeded expectations. We saw so many sights included was hop on hop off bus and water taxi. Easy to use and good value for money.
