You should take a walk along The High Line before visiting Chelsea Market... get to see lots of New York and it's really pretty especially when the sun is out!

The High Line is a great example of an original transformation of a useless abandoned structure into a public place that everyone enjoys. They turned an elevated freight rail line into a park-like walkway stretching for many-many blocks. It’s beautifully landscaped - there are flowers and bushes planted along the walkway, benches are conveniently located to take a break and enjoy many interesting views. It’s a great place for photographers – so many opportunities for great shots. There are some artworks on display at several spots. This is a very unique place in New York.

This is one of my favorite places in the city. It's a park in the Meatpacking district up on old train trestles...it's the coolest thing built in NYC in decades. Great views, places to eat and drink, etc..,

This is a nice park, but can get crowded in the summer. The best thing is knowing that it's entirely funded by private donations and not a single tax dollar was used to create or manage it.

Brilliant idea. New York could use more innovative green spaces like this one. Every city could. Love this place - perfect spot for an afternoon outing.

The High Line is an old railroad platform that was converted into a park. The elevated park has some nice simple views of the surrounding streets and the bay. They have lots of greenery and some sections have tables, chairs, and benches if you want to sit and have lunch or just to enjoy the view. When I walked through in the early morning, I saw some coffee carts and artists setting up in the covered sections of the park. A creative way of using old structures and spaces. High Line is located in the Chelsea area and just a few blocks away from Chelsea Market.

It's so obvious that it's almost a cliche. ALMOST. The Highline is the park that inspired a bajillion other cities to whip their dusty industrial bones and waterfronts back up into shape. While I still can't bring myself to watch the traffic go by on the bleacher seating (Seriously, what's the point?), walking the duration of the Highline gives you a chance to spot the rarest of sights; smiling New Yorkers.

The park is really neat. If you read the history plaque, you'll learn that the railroad track was used to carry freight above and away from the huddle and bustle of NYC. As NYC changed, the tracks feel into disrepair and it was decided that it would be turned into a park! As you walk along the entirety, you'll get great views of the Hudson Bay, Meatpacking District, and there's also some food vendors and Blue Bottle Coffee! This is also a popular spot for photo shoots.
Definitely a great spot for a stroll after dinner or after you shop at Chelsea Market.

Built on a historic freight rail line, this park is an architectural beauty. Long, wooden lawn chairs line the rail, and they're perfect for tanning and napping under the sun. Elevated above the streets along the Hudson River, just west of Union Square and Chelsea Market, this is a sanctuary that close to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan but removed enough that you can enjoy some sunshine and fresh air.

This newly built, rised park is a new hot spot in NYC. You can walk along the park and look down the city from above. A lot of cultural functions are held here, each section is well connected to the local transportation. Art, nature, culture all together; highly recommended if you haven't been to NYC for last few years.
