The High Line is a walking path, a park, and a wonderful public space transformed from an elevated unused rail line. The creators kept lots of the original plants that grew on the tracks after it was closed and planted some others. Some parts of the old tracks are left for rolling cafés and lounges, ​but most of the High Line is covered with greenery and concrete paths. This unique elevated park offers some of the best views of the Hudson River and the city's architectural masterpieces. It's a perfect place to enjoy the scenery while sipping a coffee or lemonade on a warm summer day. The best time to wander around the High Line is arguably during sunrise because it isn't crow​de​d and the rays of the morning sun create a truly magical atmosphere.
