The High Line - NYC

The High Line, NY
The High Line, New York City, NY

Aptly named, The High Line is a unique plant-lined public park, elevated above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side. It was transformed into a park from a historic freight rail line. The 1.5 mile long High Line runs for nearly 20 blocks and stands 30 feet over street level. 

The High Line Access Points

You can enter the High Line from multiple access points – Gansevoort Street, 23rd Street or 30th Street. Note that all other access points are exit only. Allow about 30 minutes to walk the entire length of the elevated walkway and park which features beautifully-designed gardens and world-class contemporary artwork. Free public programs are offered throughout the year.

Free Docent-led Public Tours

Free docent-led public tours are offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from May-October, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays from November-April.


Open year-round. Mon-Fri 7am-9pm. No reservations required. Sat-Sun 9am-9pm. Free timed-entry reservations may be required, so be sure to check their website directly for updated information.
