Walk the Line

A revolutionary public space and urban revitalization project, the High Line is an ambling plant-lined elevated parkway converted from a long-abandoned freight line above the west side of Manhattan. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the 1.5-mile parkway, which stands 30 feet over street level, wraps around the Hudson Yards neighborhood.

Art on High Ground

The High Line is also an extraordinary cultural performance space -- Friends of the High Line commissions and produces public arts projects, like The Mile-Long Opera, a unique music and poetry experience.

The avant-garde arts program includes other site-specific exhibitions, murals, billboards, videos, and performances.

New Yorkers to Converge at Hudson Yards

The High Line’s southern entrance is on West 14th Street at the new Whitney Museum. The trail runs north through Chelsea for a mile and a half, through the densest part of the gallery district, and concludes at Hudson Yards. While the park wraps the entire Hudson Yards neighborhood, a main entrance located on 30th Street by 10 Hudson Yards is a key access point for people visiting The Shops & Restaurants, The Shed and offices at Hudson Yards.
