Description

What do you do with an antiquated elevated rail line where freight cars once rolled into buildings and warehouses along New York's West Side? You turn it into one of the most captivating parks in the world! Our new High Line Walking Tour lets you enjoy this wondrous attraction to the fullest - the pleasant promenades, expansive views, lush natural plantings, commissioned artwork, colorful history of the surrounding meatpacking district and its striking architecture, both vintage and modern. Learn how the Oreo cookie was invented in the nearby Nabisco factory, now the site of the bustling Chelsea Market. Hear accounts of horse-mounted urban cowboys who escorted trains at street level until numerous accidents dictated the tracks be elevated. Get a bird's-eye view of the Hudson River and Pier 59, the intended docking spot of the Titanic.
