5 Places to Stop for Coffee Near the High Line in New York City

Views during a walk on the High Line in New York City
The High Line in New York is by far my favorite walk in the city. Situated on an abandoned elevated train line, the High Line was given new life about 15 years ago when it was turned into a walking and running path. Running from the Meatpacking district at Washington and Gansevoort Street all the way to 34th Street and 11th Av, the High Line is a fantastic commuter route. Every time I visit New York, I stay somewhere along the High Line, grab a coffee, and enjoy a relaxing walk to my office near Chelsea Market. Here are five suggestions for places to stop for coffee before a walk on the High Line in New York.

NYC's Finest - Murray's Bagels

It is nearly impossible to get authentic New York bagels anywhere else in the world. For this reason, I eat bagels for breakfast nearly every morning when I visit NYC. Murray's Bagels is my go to bagel place near the High Line. Located on 8th Avenue near 23rd Street in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, Murray's is just a few blocks from the 24th Street entrance to the High Line. Pick up a salt bagel with butter (my personal favorite) and a cup of drip coffee and you're on your way to a perfect morning.

Think Coffee Before a Walk on the High Line

Think Coffee on West 30th Street in New York is situated conveniently across the street from the 30th street entrance to the High Line. Pick up a cappuccino and a decadent doughnut to fuel your hike on the High Line.

Underline Coffee at the High Line

Underline Coffee on 20th Street in Chelsea is conveniently located under the High Line and across the street from the stairs leading up to the trail. Treat yourself to a well-crafted latte and get walking.

Woodstock General, A General Store in Manhattan

Woodstock General at 10th Avenue and 22nd Street in Manhattan is a rather unorthodox choice for a list of coffee places near the High Line. Primarily a 'general store', Woodstock General also sells coffee. I simply loved the old-fashioned country decor. I felt a bit like a lumberjack getting ready to chop down trees as I lined up to order my coffee.

Woodstock General happens to be located across the street from some really cool street art above the Empire Diner and is worth the trek for this reason alone. Get your coffee and head to 23rd Street to get onto the High Line for your morning walk.

Best Bagel and Coffee

Best Bagel & Coffee is another great spot to go for both coffee and breakfast. Located at the far end of the High Line in the bustling area around Madison Square Garden, it's worth a stop for a drip coffee and pumpernickel bagel with cream cheese. You may even consider picking up a dozen bagels on your final day in Manhattan Put the bagels in Ziploc bags and pop them in the freezer when you get home so the trip to NYC lives on. I bring home bagels every time I visit New York. 

Walking the High Line

Now that you are fed and caffeinated, it's time to get walking on the High Line. A brisk walk from one end of the High Line to the other takes about 30-45 minutes. I love the sense of being above the madness when hiking the High Line. There are no traffic lights to stop you and the sounds of busy daily life and Manhattan seem to fade away. The High Line park is planted with lovely wildflowers and other low maintenance plants. There are art exhibits dotted from one end of the High Line to the other. I love this exhibit (or is it an exhibit???): Beyond this point you may encounter nude sunbathers. Everyone I saw on the High Line was fully clothed despite the warnings to the contrary.

You may even spot a bird or two while walking on the High Line.

Here are a few shots that I posted to Instagram during my walk on the High Line. I really believe that the High Line is the best walking trail in New York City.
