The High Line in New York

The High Line Walkway in New York

The High Line is an aerial walkway that offers some spectacular views of New York City.  Don’t get me wrong, you’re not going to see the Empire State Building or the New York skyline from this view point, but you are going to see bustling New York at it’s best.

This is New York from an unusual perspective where this public pathway has been built on an abandoned freight rail line in the old meatpacking district of the city.  The High Line runs from Gansevoort Street, (old meatpacking district) to W34th Street, between 10th & 11 Avenues and runs for around 1 mile long.

Step above the crowds and make use of this unusual vantage point on The High Line.  You can see in the image above an entrance onto the High Line from the steps that takes you straight onto the pathway on the metal bridge structure.  The High Line juxtaposes traditional New York architecture with modern artwork to give the viewer a new perspective on the city.
