Tips from locals
A railroad track that’s been converted into green space. A nice walk with great views and treats along the path.
The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. Saved from demolition by neighborhood residents and the City of New York, the High Line opened in 2009 as a hybrid public space where visitors experience nature, art, and design.
Nice broad walk through the city. View the lower west side from 14th street to 34th, and finish the trip with shopping/dinning at the 2019 new architecture - Vessel (at Hudson Yards).
Part old railway track part park. Wonderful walk above the city from 14th street all the way to 34th. Entrance right by Whitney musuem. Great poets, food and ice cream vendors lining the highline on your journey.
An elevated train track turned walking park in the famous meatpacking and chelsea area.

“A walk, peddle, or carriage ride through the crisscrossing pathways of Central Park is a must-do on anyone's New York City itinerary. In winter, you can even lace up your skates and glide across Wollman Rink. This huge park in the city center, a half-mile wide and 2.5 miles long, is one of the things that makes New York such a beautiful and livable city. Besides being a great place to experience a little nature, Central Park has many attractions within its borders, and most of them are free, making it one of the few cheap things to do in NYC. Some of the most popular places to visit include the Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields, the Central Park Zoo, and the Lake. If you are exploring the park on your own, start by picking up a map at one of the visitor centers and plot your routing.”
