Take a Walk on the High Line

June 2023

With sunny days and blue skies ahead for the foreseeable future, it’s time to celebrate all that summer has to offer. Residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN are within walking distance of one of New York City’s most beloved destinations—and one of the most idyllic spots for spending a summer afternoon or balmy evening: the High Line. From its proximity to some of the city’s finest art galleries to its summer events calendar, the High Line has something to offer all its visitors throughout the season.

Formerly an elevated freight train rail along Manhattan’s West Side, the High Line stretches just under a mile and a half from Gansevoort Street to 34th Street. Since its debut in 2009, the High Line has attracted millions of visitors every year, thanks to its planted gardens, landscape architecture, trails, play areas, and gathering spaces. Whether for a sun-soaked amble through the park or to check out the public art displayed throughout, the High Line remains one of the city’s most popular draws, not just through the summer season.

In addition to its key attraction—of natural beauty embedded within the broader city landscape—the High Line also offers a sense of community. On Tuesdays, the park is open for evening strolls and an opportunity to do some stargazing. High-powered telescopes are provided between sunset and the park closing, as well as guidance from members of the Amateur Astronomers Association, who can offer some wisdom throughout the process of identifying and reveling in astronomical sightings.

Visitors can make the most of a trip to the High Line by enjoying everything along its path on the West Side. 555TEN residents can peruse the dining options, wine shops, and flower stalls at the Chelsea Market near 15th Street for some shopping, a meal of lobster rolls and oysters, or a taco to enjoy while picnicking in the park. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s storied gallery culture offers residents an opportunity to check out the most cutting-edge works on display in the city—and the world.

Residents of 555TEN’s Midtown rentals can conveniently explore the city’s culture and green spaces all summer long. Contact our team to learn more about the benefits of living close to many of New York’s finest parks.
