High Line in NYC: Things to do and see on a walking tour

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.

Our insider tips

When to go

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.

Plan Ahead

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.

How to Access

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.

Worth it if you're committed to doing a lot of things!

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.

Best way to see what's going on all over town.

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, lower, mid and upper tour in one day, great value for money

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

Really enjoyed the night tour! The day tours need more organization.

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.

Fantastic value , great way to see all the sights

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.
