About The High Line, New York City
The High Line is a 1.45 miles (2.33 km) long elevated park, 30ft (9m) above the ground. It was originally built in the 1930s as an elevated railroad along the West Side of Manhattan. Today it is a transformed public park attracting millions of locals and tourists. There are many outdoor activities for tourists. The elevated greenway can be reached by elevators or stairs about every two blocks. Walking along the beautifully landscaped park is an almost serene experience as you are three storeys above the city.
The landscapes often reminds us the High Line's railroad past, with stretches of steel tracks still in place and concrete slabs shaped in the form of rails. The route even leads through buildings where trains used to deliver their cargo.
Along a central path are flower beds, often with wild grasses similar to those that used to overgrow the tracks after the railroad was abandoned. There are plenty of benches and even a series of steps from where you have a view over 10th Avenue.
This is a highly maintained public space for all visitors to enjoy. The High Line is operating on its spring schedule. However, the schedule should be checked in advance. Reaching this place is easy.
