NYC's High Line Park – a definite highlight!


A few tourists know the interesting things to see in Chelsea and in its surroundings. In the past, this neighborhood was characterized by grocery stores, industries and storages. In recent years, Chelsea has undergone a significant renewal, becoming one of the coolest areas in New York, with many restaurants, important brand shops and a vivid night life.

One of its most ambitious projects which is the High Line, a public park built on an abandoned freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. Founded in 1999 by community residents, it is owned by the City of New York and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Strolling along the High Line’s entire length, seeing the city all around from this vantage point is something no other city has to offer. The benches and resting areas invite to lounge, sit in the sun, read, or people-watch. Make sure you walk down the Highline, so you can finish at Chelsea Market with lunch or a coffee and snack from one of the many excellent eateries in there.
