Visit one of New York City's best attractions with a local!
We start with a guided walk through Chelsea Market. We follow our noses stopping for anything that begs trying. You will learn the history of death alley and the west side cowboys before venturing up to walk the elevated railway that is the High Line.
We enter the High Line near Diane von Furstenberg’s store. PRO TIP: Did you know she has a private residence on top. You can't see it from the street.
On the High Line, you will learn about significant historical landmarks and marvel at the beautiful vistas and incredible architecture going up by starchitects such as Zaha Hadid and the homes of stars like Mick Jagger and Kanye West. Enjoy wonderful commissioned art and street art along the way.
The tour finishes on the northern end of the High Line near the High Line Hotel and art galleries of West Chelsea.
Before or after the tour: visit the art galleries of West Chelsea, shop the Meatpacking's trendy stores, check out the new Whitney Museum, have a leisurely lunch at the Standard Hotel, Cookshop or Bubby’s.

“What’s great about the High Line is that there are nooks, crannies and hideaways. There are vistas and vantage points. You can turn one way and find yourself looking north up at 10th Avenue, but if you turn the other way you’ll see the Statue of Liberty.”
James Corner, Landscape Architect for the New York City's Highline
