The High Line, an abandoned 1930s elevated rail track turned 21st-century park, is beloved by locals and tourists alike. It threads through some of the city's most innovative architecture, from the Renzo Piano–designed Whitney Museum, past the Standard Hotel, and along to the optical illusion–esque HL23 building. The park has speckled concrete walkways and plentiful seating areas along its 1.45-mile path, as well as wetland grasses and wooded perches. Architect Piet Oudolf based his designs on an imagined version of the urban meadow that had previously grown undisturbed on the tracks after trains ceased running in 1980. “To walk on the High Line,” says Friends of the High Line co-founder Joshua David, “is to experience New York from a vantage point that can’t be touched anywhere else.”

There are entrances at Gansevoort and Washington Street, 14th Street, 16th Street, 18th Street, 20th Street, 23rd Street, 26th Street, 28th Street, 30th Street, 30th Street and 11th Avenue, and 34th Street and 12th Avenue.
