Urban Park


Est. Duration


Message from Laura Peruchi

Highline is probably the most famous attraction in Chelsea. It is a park built on an old elevated train line, which was inaugurated in 1934. The use of the railway was decreasing until the ’60s and, as early as the early ’80s, it was no longer used. In 1999, the movements to prevent the demolition of the railroad began. In 2009, the park finally opened for the first visitors – and in 2018, they finished the last phase. Something that was supposed to be abandoned and demolished, has become a space used by locals and tourists. Honestly, I find the park more interesting during the spring/summer season, but there’s no denying that it’s a cool spot and it brings new perspectives to the city. It starts at 14th Street and goes to 34th Street, intersecting with Hudson Yards.

TIP: Check the calendar on the official website, there are always interesting and free activities – including tours on Tuesdays and Saturdays!
