Description

New York City's High Line Park was ranked last year as one of the world’s top 10 places to visit. Learn about the park’s beginnings as an elevated train line, and hear the inside stories about its development. On this 75-minute guided tour you’ll walk through the park 40 feet above Manhattan, taking in views of the neighborhoods of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District from above. Hear how these old industrial and blue collar areas have become some of the city’s most expensive and trendy! The High Line is now home to over 225 species of plants, making it a small botanical garden in the sky. You’ll see how this abandoned rail line has transformed the landscape of Manhattan's west side, while also maintaining traces of the area’s industrial past. This is a great New York story of industry, history, and everyday New Yorkers working to make their city even better. In addition to hearing the amazing stories, you’ll experience High Line as a work of art in itself. Admire the views of the surrounding neighborhoods and cutting-edge architecture.
