What to expect
  • The High Line, aka High Line Park, is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33-km) New York City park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of old New York Central Railroad called the West Side Line. The High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway and rails-to-trails park. This walking tour runs the full length of the park, from the Tiffany and Co. Foundation Overlook—with a view eastward to the Meatpacking District and westward to the Whitney Museum of American Art—to the CSX Transportation Gate. In between, there are sundecks and more overlooks to see. There’s also a two-block-long pathway that winds through a miniature forest of dogwoods, bottlebrush buckeye, hollies, roses, and other dense shrubs and trees, plus a grove of bigleaf magnolia, sassafras, and serviceberry trees. There’s even some of the wild landscape that grew up on the High Line before it was a park, like crabapple trees, asters, sedges, goldenrods, and alumroot. On this tour, there will also be a chance to visit Pier 54, where the survivors of the Titanic arrived, and the old Nabisco factory at Chelsea Market, where the original Oreo Cookie was invented.

This is not a terribly long walk. It is much better than I expected . It is truly remarkable how they have developed this smoky of foliage on a raised train track. Very nice thing to do .

This is such brilliant idea making a garden on disused railway lines. Now that the greenery has matured, the area is teeming with wild life and birds with many shrubs and flowers attracting butterflies and other insects to the area. It is a nice country walk making your forget the traffic below.
