Built on a section of the former New York Central Railroad, the High Line is a 1.5-mile-long elevated greenway / public park on the West Side of Manhattan. Designed as a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations (Project Lead), Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf, the High Line has always intended to be more than just a park. Visitors can stroll through thoughtfully planned gardens, view world-class artword, experience outdoor performances, savor delicious food, or connect with friends and neighbors-all while enjoying a unique perspective of New York City.
The High Line has become one of the top attractions in New York City since the repurposed railway park opened in 2009. The High Line is open till 9pm daily, with COVID-related measures in place: weekend visits require a free researvation of timed-entry.
