High Line Park – New York City, New York

April 11, 2010

People love to stroll through parks and the High Line in New York City might be the most unique. Located in the meatpacking district of the city, this park is built on top of an abandoned
elevated subway line. In June of this year, a portion of the park opened to the public running from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street.

The High Line is open daily from 7:00AM to 10:00PM

You can access the park in five locations at this time:

  • Gansevoort Street
  • 14th Street (Elevator access will be available later this summer.)
  • 16th Street (elevator access)
  • 18th Street
  • 20th Street

Completion of the entire park slated for 2011.

    Dear Fellow Eagle Scout,

    This park is a great find in the city! Thank you for introducing me to it…

    I went to High Line Park recently and it suddenly struck up an urge within me to go hiking. As a fellow New Yorker and Eagle Scout, perhaps you have recommendations and/or experience in going camping or hiking somewhere close to Manhattan that you could recommend? Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’d love to be outdoors in some authentic nature with a view that doesn’t come from a sky-scraper and in a forest that was only planned by Mother Nature herself.

    Thanks for all the insights with this blog…
