This dramatic balcony marks the point where the southern end of the High Line was severed in the 80s, making way for apartments in the former Manhattan Refrigerating Warehouse. It’s east of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the offices of Friends of the High Line.

In warm months, vines cascade over the railings here to form a lush curtain visible to passers-by. On the street below is the red brick building of the Meatpacking District’s last operating meatpacking plant, and the dramatic glass hotel, The Standard High Line, is directly north.

When the High Line was still an empty railroad track, water would accumulate at this spot naturally—that’s why the designers planned the subtle water feature here. It’s a family favorite during warmer months, a place for both children and children-at-heart to dip their toes.

The High Line runs along the former home of National Biscuit Company, aka Nabisco (now home to Chelsea Market). This is where the Oreo cookie was invented, using flour delivered by trains in this passage. It’s now our open-air food court.

This spur crosses 10th Ave. to connect to the former Merchants Refrigerated Warehouse. It’s a slice of High Line botanic history, with crab apples, asters, sedges, goldenrods, and alumroot evoking the wild days before the park was open to all.

Here, the original steel train tracks run along the pathway between the dogwoods, bottlebrush buckeye, hollies, and other dense shrubs and trees—a magical convergence of the industrial and the natural.

Designed to complement the natural microclimate of this stretch of the park, where bigleaf magnolia, aromatic sassafras, and other trees flourish, the path gently rises eight feet above the High Line, bringing you face-to-face with the treetops.

In this section—the widest of the High Line—the path makes a pivot from its north-south orientation to one running east-to-west. There are a wealth of furniture options here, including the signature High Line peel-up X benches, making this section of the park an open, social hub.

The concrete deck in this part of the park has been stripped away to reveal the original framework of steel beams and girders. These industrial structures have been coated in a silicone surface, transforming them into an area safe for running, climbing, and play.

Our gardeners leave this landscape of self-seeded plants mostly uncultivated, honoring the iconic urban landscape that emerged on these tracks after the trains stopped running. The 360-degree views of the Hudson River and the city here are stunning.
