Full description
New York City's High Line Park was ranked last year as one of the world’s top 10 places to visit. Learn about the park’s beginnings as an elevated train line, and hear the inside stories about its development. On this 75-minute guided tour you’ll walk through the park 40 feet above Manhattan, taking in views of the neighborhoods of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District from above. Hear how these old industrial and blue collar areas have become some of the city’s most expensive and trendy! The High Line is now home to over 225 species of plants, making it a small botanical garden in the sky. You’ll see how this abandoned rail line has transformed the landscape of Manhattan's west side, while also maintaining traces of the area’s industrial past. This is a great New York story of industry, history, and everyday New Yorkers working to make their city even better. In addition to hearing the amazing stories, you’ll experience High Line as a work of art in itself. Admire the views of the surrounding neighborhoods and cutting-edge architecture.

Kevin was AWESOME

That was the best guide we ever had. So well informed, local so knew past and present too. Kevin gave us so much history, all the facts and even took us further than our tour to show us where to go for lunch! Would rate him 100 % and the tour too.

Great journey of discovery

The High Line Walking Tour turned out to be a highlight of our visit to NYC, thanks in part to the knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. The involvement of the neighborhood and the municipality in the realization and maintenance is encouraging. However, the walk also illustrates in a very confrontational way how the city is developing. The necessary counterbalance to cynical project developers is still somewhat present, but it makes it painfully clear how disrespectful historical heritage is relentlessly sacrificed to impersonal 'progress'.
