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
Loved it! We had a 2 day pass and did the north loop on day 1 and south loop day 2. the guides were really knowledgeable and we felt we learned a lot about New York. There were 2 negatives - why do you employ lots of Male ‘in your face’ ticket towtes? I’d read how good your tours were and was specifically looking for you. I would’ve appreciated a central location to go to or a member of your team assisting me at the stops instead of been hassled by your sales people. I Really didn’t like that and some of them were so in your face it was quite intimidating. Also, our ticket had a circle line boat trip included. Your recommendation on the ticket was to get there 30 minutes before the departure time at Pier 16. We actually got there 45 minutes earlier than the departure but because we’d not exchanged the voucher for tickets we had to join a huge line and missed the boat. if you’d explained that process we’d definitely have caught it.
We had a similar pass for San Francisco last summer. It's so nice to have options and to be able to skip lines. The hint to go to the Rose Center entrance of the American Museum of Natural History was outstanding! Long lines due to the holidays and a Kwanza celebration but walked right in the side entrance.
We have done many tours, yours and other companies and Maki was one of the best tour guides we Have ever had. He is bright funny informative, interesting, knowledgable and very very enjoyable to listen to.
Provided you with great information in an entertaining way. The guides were informative well beyond the scope of telling what it was. I enjoy the historical perspective with a touch of humour added.
Fantastic value for money pass that allows you visit more attractions than you could ever possibly fit in! 100% recommend to anyone visiting New York, especially if it’s your first time.
