One of New York's less famous attractions which nevertheless attracts millions of visitors very year.
The High Line is a disused railway spur and after it closed nature took over and seeds were planted by the winds and birds and grew with the rain. The park was taken over by the City of New York and is now run as a not for profit organisation dependent on donations from the public.
The route is 1.45 miles long and runs from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street passing through the west edge of Chelsea Market, a food hall and eventually leads to the Javits Center on 34th Street.
This is a unique way to see some of the famous sites of New York while strolling along this natural walkway with many stops along the way to tempt you with a refreshment.
