Come to the park that used to be part of the New York Central railroad.
The High Line is a 1.45-mile elevated garden area that runs along what used to be the New York Central Railroad back in the 1900s. This once bustling railroad stopped its service, making way for the booming trucking and air transportation industries. The High Line is its own hidden garden among the concrete jungle and is fun to visit any time of the year.
This is a well-traveled park where millions of people have walked. It is supported by a non-profit organization and is a free public space that anyone can enjoy. A unique feature is the 14th Street passage, which shows a video program every evening at dusk. The 10th Avenue square has an amphitheater that hosts live public performances and offers a view to the street below that is perfect for people watching. Be sure to check out the Interim Walkway between 30th and 34th Street for a 360-degree view of the Hudson River. It is easy to spend hours looking around when you visit the High Line; this is a place you won’t want to miss.
