Amazing green & accessible space in the Big Apple!
Had never done the High Line before but friends had recommended it - a green and tranquil place right above the city - so pleased we checked it out! Perfect Sunday morning meander!
Transport & Parking
Not sure about parking - but the High Line is easy to access from a multitude of locations. Many of the New York Subway stations are wheelchair accessible - including 14th St 8th Ave which is just a couple of blocks away from the Gansevoort elevator.
We started at 34th Street and came off at Gansevoort Street. The lifts at both locations were funky and spacious. Up on the High Line itself, there was level access throughout. There's also helpful maps at street level to help you find out where you are. There are descriptions all the way along to describe any artwork or displays along the way. Even had an accessible picnic table which was stylish as well as being accessible! The wheelchair accessible Access Points (both elevator and ramps) are listed on the High Line website.
Standard US accessible loo set up. Located within the main restrooms. Pictured is the one just near the Gansevoort St access point.
Didn't need any specific help - but all the members of staff that we met were very helpful.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Cannot recommend it enough - it's a fantastic location to chill out in when in New York!
