Visit one of New York City's most exciting neighborhoods.

We start at Chelsea Market. We visit a range of sights including the Ground Zero Museum Workshop and trendy Milk Studios where you’re likely to spot a celebrity or two.

You will learn the history of death alley and the west side cowboys before venturing up to walk the elevated railway that is the Highline. We enter the Highline near Diane von Furstenberg’s store with her private residence built on top, which is a truly an architectural wonder. On the Highline, you will learn about significant historical landmarks and marvel at the incredible architecture going up along the Highline 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 Highline near the Highline 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.

Gallery


“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.”
