Description

Community Impact: -Our tour guides encourage eating local, helping to reduce our impact on the environment and supporting local communities -Our tours strive to include businesses that support and employ refugees -Our tour narrative includes a focus on the environment and community organizations, including Friends of The High Line, which came together as a small collective to transform a neighborhood from abandoned to revitalized -We hope to inspire and educate with our inclusion of repurposed buildings and spaces, which can help preserve history and potentially reduce waste Summary: Tour two of New York’s trendiest west-side neighborhoods packed with eclectic eateries, fabulous architectural gems, and an unexpectedly peaceful oasis suspended above the busy city streets! With your local, savvy NYC tour guide, you’ll ascend to walk along the Chelsea neighboorhood’s portion of the 1.45-mile-long High Line, an elevated greenway built on a former railroad track. You’ll learn about the history of this impressive undertaking as you take in views of the Hudson River and its unusual artificial park known as Little Island. You’ll also be able to see the public square of Hudson Yards and its collection of striking and gravity-defying buildings. Once we’ve worked up an appetite after our short walk, we’ll head to world-famous Chelsea Market. During your Chelsea Market tour segment, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge your sweet tooth with the market’s many desserts or grab a slice of authentic New York–style pizza. Your guide will be happy to recommend their favorite eateries, offering excellent Asian and Middle Eastern dishes, artisanal bread and baked goods, Mexican- and Japanese-inspired street eats, and more! Your tour guide will fill you in on the market’s history from humble beginnings to the renowned food hall it’s become today. We’ll finish up our New York City walking tour in the adjacent Meatpacking District, another historically industrial neighborhood that is now one of the most desirable places to live and work in the city. You may be surprised to learn the more gritty former lives of the historic buildings and spaces here and weigh in on the city’s gentrification to today’s luxury apartments and high-end businesses. From here, you’re in the perfect place to continue exploring either neighborhood, continue your foodie adventure back at the market, or end your day with sunset views along the High Line.
