Starting at Chelsea Piers, once home to the White Star and Cunard Lines, Matt leads you on a 90 minute walking tour through Chelsea and through the story that leads up to the High Line Park – a former industrial railway of the 1930’s that is now Manhattan’s newest and most celebrated park.
Following the High Line route, you pass through the notable Art Gallery District, fashionable condominiums and past several historic landmarks, including the General Theological Seminary and Chelsea Market – where the Oreo was invented and current home of the Food Network, Morimoto & Emeril Live.
The walking tour ends at Gansevoort Street, in the heart of the famed Meat Packing District. Guests are then invited to walk, explore, photograph & enjoy the High Line at their own pace.
