  • The High Line
    This elevated railway, which sat abandoned on the west side of Manhattan for decades after its last freight train barreled through in 1980, has become in recent years one of the City's largest and most successful outdoor restoration and preservation projects—a public park 30 feet above street level. It stretches from Gansevoort Street all the way up to 34th Street (the last section, the Rail Yards, just opened in fall 2014) and runs for much of its length just west of Tenth Avenue. Most of its attractions are in Chelsea, including an overhang near the 18th Street entrance that provides one of the City's more distinctive sightseeing views. On sunny days, you'll find crowds of locals and visitors enjoying the vistas and greenery throughout the park. Check out our High Line guide for details.
