Great NYC Views: The High Line


The third New York City view recommended in a recent list of six great views in New York City in a Hudson Valley newspaper is the High Line, situated on the site of an old freight line in Manhattan.  Opened in 2009, the elevated park runs above Tenth Avenue for about a mile, between 14th and 30th Streets.

Because it’s so popular, try to arrive before 9:30 am to beat the crowds; you should find ample street parking near the 14th Street staircase.  While there’s lots to see, check out the Sunken Overlook near 17th Street and the Gansevoort Overlook at the southern point of the park for some great views.  Free guided walking tours are also offered, and if you get hungry there are food vendors between 12th and 18th Streets.
