Hudson River Walk to Little Island and the High Line

Details

Join us on a moderate paced walk of 7-8 miles along the Hudson River Greenway, with a visit to Little Island and The High Line.

From 72nd Street, we walk to the Hudson River and follow the Greenway south to Little Island, a 2.4-acre public park located at west 14th Street. Developed by the Diller-Von Furstenberg family foundation, along with Hudson River Trust, Little Island is supported by 132 Pot-Shaped structures called "Tulips" suspended above the water, functioning as GIANT POTS with 35 species of trees, 70 species of shrubs and 200 species of herbs & flowers.

As its designer Thomas Heatherwick said "raise the surface to create Relief & Make the Island a dynamic experience that offers many views of the city".

After lunch, we walk The High Line the elevated former freight railroad
line transformed into a wild wonder land of city wilderness.
