About the High Line:
Lovely green spaces are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of New York City. While Central Park is the most popular urban park in the country – with an impressive 40 million visitors each year – the High Line is another option for city dwellers and visitors who want to spend some time outdoors.
This NY Attraction, the first phase of which opened in 2009, was modeled after a similar project in Paris called the Promenade Plantee. The High Line is a park created on the site of an elevated portion of a railroad that is no longer in use. This once dilapidated part of the city is now a beautiful testament of what can happen with a little outside-the-box thinking.
The High Line stretches for nearly 1.5 miles and runs from Gansevoort Street to the northern edge or West Side Yard. Since it opened, the area has seen other benefits besides just a place to sit in the sun. Since the NY Attraction, the real estate prices in the area have enjoyed quite a boost. A number of special events, such as guided tours, soundscapes, and art installations, take place at this NY Attraction each year. A list of upcoming events can be found online.
While the High Line doesn’t draw nearly the number of visitors that Central Park enjoys, the NY Attraction does welcome 5 million visitors each year. Entrances to the High Line can be found on 18th Street, 25th Street, 26th Street, 28th Street, and 11th Avenue. Additional entrances that are also wheelchair accessible can be found at Gansevoort, 14th Street, 16th Street, 23rd Street, and 30th Street.
