What to See and Do in New York During the Day

HIGH LINE

Originally built in the 1930s to raise dangerous freight trains above Manhattan streets, the High Line is currently being restored as an elevated public park a mile and a half in length, making it Manhattan’s latest attraction.

The renovation has been extraordinary: The former railway is now a sliver of green garden snaking its way above Manhattan’s West Side. Meandering concrete pathways are lined with wild plants and flowers native to the area, along with moveable seating, allowing you to relax and admire the view from this privileged vantage point. When exploring the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District and Chelsea, take to the High Line for a gentle stroll with river views, or as a means to avoid the traffic and bustle of the streets below.
