Explore New York City's only elevated park, known as the Highline, which traverses Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Along your route, your guide shares commentary about the history and architecture of the areas in which the Highline resides.

Opened in 2009, the Highline was once an operational section of New York Central Railway and is now a 1.45-mile (2.3 km) elevated park on the west side of Manhattan, just south of Midtown. The park is surprisingly quiet and is great for basking in view of the skyscrapers of Midtown and the Financial District.

Stroll through Chelsea with a stop at Chelsea Market—famous for delectable cupcakes, bakeries and fishmongers. Then make your way past the small yet stunning art galleries that populate the area. Walk through former factories and warehouses, where trains once rolled right inside the buildings to unload goods for a look at the area's industrial past.

The Meatpacking District became famous in the late 1990s, propelled by TV shows like Sex and the City, and it transformed from rows of slaughterhouses to expensive lofts. Your focus dances between architectural styles ranging from ultra-modern, such as The Standard Hotel or Frank Gehry's glass curtain design of the IAC building, to the Art Deco style of the Empire State Building.

Great tour-i think mostly because Kevin was funny and engaging with all of us. He’s a real gem. The tour itself was full of history and I liked the highline portion and wish it was longer. It was great discovering the Chelsea district too. Thank you!!

Very informative & fun to be outside walking around & learning new things. Rachel was very knowledgeable & kept us entertained with her stories. Highly recommend this to first time or returning visitors.
