The High Line has been open since 2009, offering the neighborhood of Chelsea a 1.5 mile long public park. It’s built on a historic rail line located above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side, running from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th avenues.
The High Line is extremely clean and well maintained, always abundant with plants and perennials, offering visitors a very different energy than the concrete jungle below. Built like a bridge, The High Line offers scenic views of Manhattan and the Hudson River from a unique perspective.
Also on The High Line at West 15th Street, are small open-air cafes, food trucks, and food stands like Delaney Barbecue’s Smokeline, Melt Bakery, Terroir at the Porch, The Taco Truck, and People’s Pops.
The High Line has various events throughout the year like the upcoming Haunted High Line Halloween celebration. The family-friendly event gives kids another chance to dress up in their costumes before Halloween and trick-or-treat while enjoying music, art, a haunted train tunnel, and a photo booth that will all be available during the event. The Haunted High Line Halloween celebration will be Saturday, October 25 from 11AM-3PM on The High Line between West 14th Street and West 17th Street.
Every Tuesday from May 6 to September 23, Friends of the High Line offer free hour long group tours that focus on The High Line’s history, design, and landscape.
