This 1-hour tour takes an in-depth look at the transformation of NYC, once the most dangerous city in America. Nowhere is this makeover more evident than the High Line; a disused train track that once led from the seedy Meatpacking District to a complete wasteland, but today is one of the city’s most exciting spaces. Walking almost its full length, you’ll pass a landscape of constantly-changing murals, statues and architecture. See old factories that now house fashion labels, as you trace a path to the city’s latest development: Hudson Yard, the perfect place to enjoy a well-earned break. In the 1990s, the High Line was a hulking urban ruin set for demolition. Today it’s one of the Manhattan’s prettiest and most innovative city parks. This tour immerses you in the story of how local residents, architects, business-people and city planners turned a down-and-out section of NYC into one of its most vibrant. In the company of our guide, you’ll stroll down a section of the High Line, passing street art, beautiful city views, and restored patches of the original railroad tracks. As you go, you’ll also see attractions like the world-famous Chelsea Market, the warehouses-turned glitzy bars of the Meatpacking District, and the area’s newest development jewel, the Hudson Yards.
