One visit to the High Line and you will fall in love forever. A beautiful brilliantly landscaped promenade on an abandoned elevated railway line spans the Meatpacking and Chelsea districts. Walking the High Line is such the experience loved both for tourists and New Yorkers, and you get incomparable views from an unusual vantage point – third-story level.
Under The High Line
A Visual Storytelling by Lucas Compan
Brand-new buildings by superstar architects cluster around and above the promenade, while beneath The High Line, you can find garages, warehouses, boarded-up tenements, dive bars, luncheonettes, and trendy restaurants, sharing side streets with chic boutiques, quirky shops, top-chef eateries, and major art galleries.

Gallery-hooping is fun, but outstanding works by international artists are also right out there on the street.
High Line Art presents a wide array of artwork including site-specific commissions, exhibitions, performances, video programs, and a series of billboard interventions. High Line Art invites artists to think of creative ways to engage with the uniqueness of the architecture, history, and design of the High Line and to foster a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighborhood and urban landscape.
New creations pop up all the time, artistically transforming walls, sidewalks, windows, panels, columns. It's an ever-changing landscape, bringing to the environment under The High Line an exciting and creative atmosphere. That is just what you expect from New York, isn't it?
