Vad du kommer att göra

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.

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.

Our guide was Coleman, and he was terrific--fun behind-the-scenes stories, with a personal knowledge base. It was only 12 degrees outside on the Highline, but he kept us going, with breaks for warmth and nourishment. Highly recommended, and a great value for the price!

Great tour. Appreciated the pace and thoughtful route. Full of details on historical background that my boys 9 and 13 found interesting. Great introduction to the area.

Our tour guide was Philip and he was great. He really knew the history of the meat packing district and Chelsea leading up to development of Highline. The tour was really interesting and this area is easily one of the most exciting in Manhattan? This is a great way to spend a couple of hours seeing and learning about one of the best places in New York.
