What you'll do

Begin your morning with a stop in the world-famous Chelsea Market, an abandoned factory converted into the city’s best food court. Then climb up onto the elegantly designed High Line, a park built atop an elevated railway, running for over a mile up the West Side. View unique art installations and beautiful green spaces weaving between and through buildings.

Travel South as your guide introduces you to the Meatpacking District, an industrial area reclaimed first by the counter-culture of the 1980s, then later by some of the wealthiest residents of the Big Apple. Marvel at the unique vantage point on some of Manhattan’s most iconic architecture, like Frank Gehry’s glittering glass curtain design of the IAC Building and the incredible Art Deco edifice of the Empire State.

Hear the tragic stories of the “undesirables” who once called this neighborhood home, whose community was washed away in the flood of New York’s real estate boom. Learn how the unique feel of the area was preserved almost by accident, and why the architecture persists today. Explore this neighborhood in flux, and witness first-hand the ever changing identity of New York City.

Where you'll be

Join us up on the gray steel truss of the High Line, once an industrial artery of New York, now transformed into a scenic oasis high above the street. Stroll through urban meadows where train cars full of freight and cattle once roared. From the gory history of the Meatpacking District to the reinvention of Chelsea posh, the High Line cuts a path not only through the city, but through history as well.
